Variant(s): or con·tre·danse \also kōⁿ-trə-ˈdäⁿs\
Etymology: French contredanse, by folk etymology from English country-dance
1 : a folk dance in which couples face each other in two lines or a square
2 : a piece of music for a contra dance
I went to my first Contra Dance last night! It was actually a BLAST! Probably because I went with two of my favorite people, my two daughters. We all had a lot of fun and are now hooked! We can't wait until the next one. We each only had one complaint at the end of the night.
Me: Aching feet - but SO worth it!
Reagan (16 yrs) - NO hot guys
Lizzie (6 yrs) - that it was actually over and we had to head home
We will be back! Who'd of thought? Definitely not me...
