Mt Airy Contra is now offering both online and in-person contra dancing!
Join us live from 8:00 to 9:15 pm for fun online dancing with fantastic local and national bands and callers. Doors open at 7:45. Our bands announce their tunes so that you can play along from home. Hang out after the dance for conversation with dancers near and far.
The shutdown has been especially hard on our musicians and callers. Please donate using PayPal
or mail a check payable to PATMAD c/o Commodore Barry Center,
6815 Emlen St, Philadelphia PA 19119
All donations are tax-deductible, and go to the performers for the most recent dance.
For personal checks, please put the date of the dance in the Memo line.
