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.  No need to come with a dance 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.

Dances generally run about 7-10pm.
Dancing difficulty increases steadily so beginners should come early!

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