Thursday Contras

After lengthy consideration for the safety of our community, the Thursday Night Dance Committee has decided to cancel upcoming dances at the Concord Scout House. Given the high transmission rate of variants and the high probability that there will be people with COVID-19 present at the dance, our small committee has made this hard decision. Along with many of you, we are hugely disappointed to postpone welcoming you back to the Thursday dances. We truly appreciate your support and understanding.
When we get up and running, attendance will be by pre-registration only.
Location: The Concord Scout House, 74 Walden St., Concord, MA

Dates: TBA  7:30 PM-10:00 PM, introductory pre-dance workshop at 7:10pm

Admission: $10-15, sliding scale.

We use Larks/Robins role terms.

This dance is sponsored by NEFFA. We are a diverse community of friendly people who enjoy and promote the lively tradition of contra dance. Please read our code of conduct: Dance Etiquette and Safety.

Watch contra dance videos! Video #1 Video #2

We will cancel the dance if we feel that weather conditions would make for unsafe travel.

No animals (other than service animals) are allowed in the building.
