Contra Dance- Childgrove Country Dancers

 —  —

The Monday Club, 37 S. Maple, Webster Groves, MO 63119

Contra Dances – These energetic evenings are modeled after traditional barn dances that were the primary social event in American towns for much of the last 300 years. We include a lesson to help you feel more comfortable with the dance figures, we teach every dance, and we feature great live string bands each night. You and a partner dance with other couples throughout the dance, following a caller's prompts. Afterwards, everyone changes partners.

Notes from Sadie:

An American Folk Event

Traditional instrumental melodies & homegrown vocal harmonies on old folk ballads, banjo songs, & old country standards of love & heartbreak, moonshine & madness, murder & mayhem, trucks & trains, & random oddments. We go old-school on Americana for sure, but don't be surprised to hear us do something from Neil Young or The Band once in a while. That’s how we roll. Influences: Lovers, laughers, gamblers, fighters, drinkers, dancers, hobos, jokers, tricksters, organizers, agitators, and ... oh wait, did you mean musical influences? All of 'em. Or none of 'em. All or none. Our motto: mirth, merriment and mischief are the mission, and music is the method!
