In the words of Dan Black, the joy of contra dancing came was found in the mid-1990’s with my move to New Jersey from Pennsylvania.  You will usually see Dan or possibly hear me on the floor at the many nearby dances within the NJ & PA area.   Contra dancing is about having fun.  Just imagine the fun that I have learned about at the microphone helping other dancers increase their funness (sic). Should not funness be a word, oh well come dancing, as the Kinks would say, and get your fun on.   Dances are carefully selected and walkthroughs are as short as possible so the dancers may dance to the great tunes from the band.  See ya soon.
