We are now requiring high-filtration masks (N95, KN95, KF94, or similar). See our our blog post.

1st and 3rd Sunday Contra Dances

BIDA hosts a contra dance on the first and third Sunday of every month at the Masonic Temple at 1950 Mass Ave., Cambridge MA, in Porter Square. These run 7:30-10:30 and cost $5-$15 (sliding scale).

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.

All our dances are gender-free (Larks / Robins calling). The Masonic Hall is not wheelchair accessible; for other aspects of accessibilty and details on our other venues see our accessibility information.
