Hi, welcome to Halifax Contra Dances’ website.

We are a volunteer-run community group that organizes monthly folks dances to awesome live music on the Halifax peninsula, from September through May each year.

Our non-gendered dances are welcoming to beginners and experienced dancers alike.  You will dance with many new friends throughout the night-but you don’t have to come with a partner. Our goal is that everyone has fun, and enjoys the movement, music, and sense of community that contra creates.

All dances are held at All Nations church hall, 2535 Robie St, Halifax, unless otherwise noted.

More details about our dances (including what to expect, what to bring, and what to wear) can be found here.
