The Charlotte Contra Dancers
Contra Dancing in Charlotte, N.C. since 1973
What is contra dancing?
Dance caller Diane Silver describes it:
"You take long lines as seen in English country dances as seen in Pride and Prejudice, put in square dancing moves your learned in school, set it to the driving beat of River Dance, and drop this all in the middle of Woodstock"
