MCDC holds contra dances most first and third Saturdays (in December, our dances may vary due to the holiday season) at the Carmel Youth Center, 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 (a minimum $20/year sponsorship helps us to continue these wonderful dances).

Dances begin at 7:00pm (unless otherwise specified), with a highly recommended newcomers' orientation 20 minutes before the dance begins. Admission for regular dances is: 

  • $12 for nonmembers (of any sister organization)
  • $10 for non-MCDC members (you must be a member in good standing of a sister organization, including CDSS)
  • $8 for MCDC members 
  • $5 for full-time students and active military (please have ID, in case)

 Check out our Calendar 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 how to 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 to learn.

Please be aware that some of our dancers are sensitive to fragrances – we respectfully request that everyone please be thoughtful about using products with fragrance prior to a contra dance.  Thank you!
