COVID: Vaccination and masks optional but welcome

Besides great dancing, the evening will include a remembrance of Rob Snow. Rob was the sound guy for the band, caller and organizer of the callers, and major promoter of the Loose Shoes contra dance as well as other dances in the area. Rob passed away in June 2020. Pandemic shutdowns and challenges prevented us from properly acknowledging Rob’s contributions to the contra dance community. He promoted the growth of contra dancing in the Salt Lake Valley as well as across Utah. He was a wonderful person and we still miss him. Connie, his wife, is here in Salt Lake and will be attending the contra dance tonight.

What is Contra Dancing???

No special skills or partners required! You can check out the videos below, the first from our own community, the other shows a perspective from another community. First time? Come early to the beginner’s workshop at 7 pm to learn a few basic figures. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Can’t wait to dance with you!
