Heather dragged me contra dancing tonight, and it was fun!  Exhausting, and hot, but fun.  There’s a contra dance every Thrusday night in Concord. I think I’m going back!

I’m glad the partners I had put up with my complete and utter clumsiness and inability to tell left from right.  I had a lot of fun.  It was also very dizzying.



  1. Friends invited me contra dancing numerous times and I always kind of meant to go but took a long time getting to my first dance. Glad I did go. In the years since I’ve met so many nice people, enjoyed the low-key atmosphere, the very good to amazing musicians who comprise contra bands… there is a lot to like.

    As for the dizzying, if you don’t mind keeping eye contact with your partner while revolving, it helps a lot. If that’s a bit too intimate just pick a spot on his or her shoulder and keep your gaze there as you go around.

    A little bit of dizzying doesn’t have to be thing, but a little too much is way more than enough.

    Have you gone back?

  2. It was fun, but I haven’t gone back, yet. Been v. busy since then. Perhaps sometime I will, but at the moment I don’t really have time.
