Workshops

Connect, Communicate, and Play

Explore ways to connect and communicate with our contra partners and neighbors, both verbally and nonverbally. Also play with different kinds of role exchanges along the way.

Mini Medleys

Listen up, the dances are changing! Dance many different styles of medley, from the classic three-dance-set all the way to never dancing the same dance twice!

Contra by the Numbers

Dances with a math-y twist! I knew I got this PhD for a reason. Get ready to count, transform, compare, and sort!

Dutch Crossing/Yankee Crossing

Famous for being one of the most challenging dances in the repertoire, Dutch Crossing or its contrafied version Yankee Crossing will be an accomplishment you’ll never forget.

Mashup Challenge 5000

Roll the dice! Randomly picked dances, random challenges--dance like a penguin while I only call using abbreviations! That's just one fun outcome from this never-the-same-way-twice challenge!
