What is Contra Dancing?
Here is a short video to help answer that question.
Join our Facebook Group: Knoxville Contra Dancers.
We dance to live music every Monday night, 8-11 pm, at the Laurel Theater (16th St. and Laurel Ave. [directions]) - $8 ($5 for students & those just listening). If this is your first time, come a few minutes early and join our new dancer workshop, where we teach the basics.
Beginners are welcome, no partner or experience is required. It's easy and fun!
With very rare exceptions we dance every Monday night from 8-11 pm at the Laurel Theater at 16th Street and Laurel Avenue [directions].
Beginners are welcome, (it helps to show up early), and no partner is required. All dances will be taught. "If you can walk, you can contra dance." Admission for dances is $8 ($5 for students & those just listening).
You can burn a lot of energy on the dance floor, so we recommend you wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing with layers that you can remove. To save yourself some time in the water line, bring a couple of bottles of water with you.
We dance in the historic Laurel Theater, to preserve our dance floor, we request that you wear or bring clean, non-marking, soft-soled, or leather shoes for dancing.
