Traditional community contra dance is a great way to laugh and make merry with your friends and neighbours, celebrating life and community in a carefree and heartfelt way. These are the precious times when folks of all ages and status share their humble commonality; when all members of the village have the opportunity to laugh at themselves and with each other. These lively and spontaneous, good-hearted moments of playing music and dancing, enjoying being together without daily burdens or responsibilities help cleanse, strengthen and renew community. The good feelings, mutual recognition and levity that naturally arise demonstrate a humble but subtly profound force for healing and reconciliation.
