1st and 3rd Sunday Contra Dances

BIDA hosts a contra dance on the first and third Sunday of every month at the Masonic Hall in Porter Square, Cambridge, MA. These run 7:30-10:30 and cost $5-$12 (sliding scale).

The 7/16, 8/6, and 8/20 dances are not at the usual place or time, see below.

If you've never contra danced before and you come to the 7pm beginner's workshop, or you bring someone who hasn't, we'll give you a free pass for a future dance.

Musicians: come sit in at one of our dances! Sit-ins are always welcome.
