Thursday Night Contra Dance

2022 Calendar

2021 calendar

In the face of the coronavirus pandemic, the PATMAD board canceled indoor in-person dances from March of 2020 onwards. We will be monitoring the pandemic and city and state regulations, and deciding when it will be safe to resume dancing in person.

The dances listed here are our online virtual dances hosted on Saturdays from the Philadelphia area. (But wait! There's more! Along with the other members of the international All Hands In partnership, together we host a virtual dance every Saturday at 8:00pm Eastern.)

Usually on second Thursdays, we have been holding online socials, with occasional guest speakers; often preceded by the online tune swaps hosted by SPUDS, Philly's phabulous open contradance band.

Stay healthy, safe, and connected!
