FUN!




contra dance
Pronunciation: \ˈkän-trə-ˌdan(t)s\
Variant(s): or con·tre·danse \also kōⁿ-trə-ˈdäⁿs\
Function: noun
Etymology: French contredanse, by folk etymology from English country-dance
Date: 1803
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...

It did remind me a bit of square dancing, although the last time I did that was in 1st grade... so who knows! It was lots of different things, waltzes, polkas, and other things.

contradancing ranks up there as one of the best things in life. We contradanced at our wedding. I just had a contradance for my 40th birthday. Nothing like it! Glad you have discovered it.
