Mt Airy Contra is now offering both online and in-person contra dancing!

Join us live on Saturdays 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.

Virtual dances hosted by Mt. Airy are listed below.

Virtual contra dances are now two Saturdays per month! See for info.
