Seacoast Contra at Newfields is a fun, lively contra dance group on the Seacoast of New Hampshire. We meet the last Friday of every month from 7:30 to 10:30 PM, with beginner lessons at 7:30 PM.
We meet at Newfields Town Hall, 65 Main Street in beautiful Newfields, New Hampshire. We have a different band and caller every month to provide lively calling and music.
Contra Dances have a relaxed, family-like atmosphere where the emphasis is on dancing, a welcome relief to noisy and smoky dance halls. The patterns of the dances are nifty.
Contra Dancing is excellent exercise that you can take at your own pace. Above all, Contra Dancers form a community of friendly, active people and they welcome new dancers, be they youngsters or seniors. Most dancers range from 20 to 80 years old. No partner is needed. All dances are taught.
Newcomers are welcome, and we offer a beginners dance lesson.
