Sponsored by the Historic Jonesborough Dance Society.
Contra dancing originated in the 17th century in England and Scotland and has become a joyful Appalachian tradition. The dance is led by a caller who teaches the sequence of figures in the dance before the music starts and then calls out the moves during each dance. There is no required footwork. No partner is needed as it is tradition to change partners for each dance.
Music by High Grounds String Band.
