MCDC holds contra dances most first and third Saturdays (in December, our dances are 2nd and 4th Saturdays) at the Monterey YMCA, unless otherwise noted in our schedules and calendars. Come alone or bring a friend – beginners are always welcome. If you'd like to support MCDC, please consider becoming a Member (just $20/year helps us to continue these wonderful dances).
Dances begin at 7:30 pm, with a highly recommended newcomers' orientation 20 minutes before the dance begins. Admission for regular dances is $8 for members, $10 for nonmembers and $5 for full-time students. Check out our Current Schedule for details and dates.
Not sure what Contra Dance is? See videos and learn more by checking out our About Contra Dance page. If you're feeling nervous about learning Contra Dance, we even have links to beginning dancers' training videos on YouTube – they are a wonderful help, though nothing replaces dancing as a way for your body to learn.
Please be aware that some of our dancers are sensitive to fragrances.
