Contra dancing is a social dance in which couples stand opposite each other in two lines. A caller, usually working with a group of live musicians, guides new and experienced dancers through a series of moves. The Oberlin Contra Dance Club hosts beginners workshops and dances, including Dandelion Romp (pictured here), in every month of the academic year. Visit the Oberlin Contra Dance Club website for a calendar of upcoming events.
