Dance the contra four ways with four of North America’s leading experts. This interactive presentation outlines a fascinating journey through the evolution of the French contra dance, from the court dances of Baroque France, to Métis communities in Canada, to Cuban-Haitian social dance, and then to urban communities of North America where queer and techno contras are gaining popularity. Join dancers and researchers Sarah Edgar, Jane Peck, Marcea Daiter, and Catherine Turocy for a session that highlights the history and cultural background of these dance forms, and gets you up dancing them yourselves!
