Welcome to the dance community at Guiding Star Grange. Here, we strive to accept each other’s differences while celebrating our mutual love of dance, music, community and friendship.
A contra dance is a community social dance comprised of dancers, musicians, a caller, a dance hall and dance organizers. Anyone is welcome to join the dance. No partner is necessary because dancers change partners after every dance. By observing simple rules of respect for other dancers in the community, all dancers will experience the joy that is contra dancing.
