When & Where

Country Dancers of Rochester sponsors traditional New England Contra Dances and English country dances. Our dances are participatory and open to all, with live music, and smoke and alcohol free. Newcomers are always welcome (unless event is specifically noted as experience required). Dances are taught and prompted, with more teaching at the beginning of the evening. No partner or special dress needed — dress comfortably and wear soft-soled, low-heeled shoes.
