Contra Dancing in West Michigan

Contra Dancing in West Michigan

Start out the new year with some foot-stompin' fun!   Contra dancing is a fun family friendly event, and no partner is necessary!   On Friday nights the Grand River Folk Arts Society puts on Contra Dances at the Fifth Street Hall in Grand Rapids. 

Come early for a Contra Dance Basics workshop at 7:00pm.  This is a dance introduction, or a refresher if you've been away from contra dancing awhile.
