Contra Dance

Christ's Church Hall
Chaptico, MD.

It's time for our Summer Break. Contra Dancing starts up again in the fall. Check back here in late August to see our schedules and events.



Contra is a traditional American style of social dance and is a huge amount of fun (and exercise) for the whole family! If you've ever danced a Virginia Reel or been to a Square Dance, you have a good idea how much fun it can be. If you haven't, it's about time you tried it! Beginners are encouraged to arrive at 7:00 to get some instruction in the various dances.

It's Our Summer Break


Open Mic

Well, It was a great season with some great concerts by local performers and some very special guests who were in our area and happened to drop by. Our Open Mic Nights are getting more and more popular with local performers and their friends getting together for hours of music and fun.


Revisit this website later on this Summer and Fall to see our new lineup of events and concerts and plan to join us.
