Swing Your Partner at Decatur Recreaton Center

The Chattahoochee Contra Dancers are now dancing at Decatur Recreation Center!

Dances are held from 8:00 to 10:30 p.m. every Friday night.  New dancers are encouraged to attend one or more of the Beginners Lessons which start promptly at 7:30 pm.  New dancers will be ‘Contra Dancing’ by their first dance starting at 8:00 pm.

There are two or more ‘Walk Thrus’ on each dance, so all dancers will be familiarized with the dance before dancing with the music.  You do not need to bring a partner as everyone comes to dance.  Just ask others to dance and most say ‘I’d love to dance’ or something similar around 90% of the time.   It is best to wear comfortable loose fitting clothes and soft sole shoes.  No high heels.

A different Caller and a different LIVE Band every Friday so there is a variety of dance and music from week to week.  Cost is $10 and $5 for students with IDs.  In addition to dancing several Contra Dances at the Friday dance, there is a mixer dance early in the evening where everyone essentially dances with everyone else, a square dance on occasion and one or two waltzes later in the evening.
