Mt. Airy Contra Dance Socials

Since June 6, 2020, we have hosted socials so that members of our dance community can be in touch in an easy and comfortable way. Our socials are usually 2nd and 4th Thursdays with an ice breaker game, a conversation starter or dessert.

Many of our socials are planned just a few days in advance, but be assured that we'll have them. Please send an email to with your full name and the location of your local contra dance. to get on our mailing list and receive the invitation to the socials. All are virtual and require pre-registration. We hope to see you at a social!
