Monterey Country Dance Community

Contra Dancing (and much more) in Monterey, California

MCDC in the Community - NEW!

The Monterey Country Dance Community (MCDC) organization strives to provide good quality dances and live music for our members and guests in the Monterey peninsula area.  As a civic-minded organization, we also work to make a contribution to the greater Monterey area.

This webpage documents the latest efforts of our organization and dance community to make a positive difference in our community.


Saturday, November 16, 2013 - Food Drive

At last month's dance, while twirling to the sounds of The Reel Deal, we also held our first Thanksgiving food drive – to benefit The Food Bank for Monterey County.  Representing the Food Bank at our dance was board member, Joseph Splane, III, who spoke briefly to our dance community on the work being done by the Food Bank and how our contribution would help.

The MCDC organization thanks everyone who made a donation to the food drive, both in-kind and monetary!

We hope to repeat this food drive in May and November each year.

Stay tuned!  v


Saturday, October 26, 2013 - Anti-Bullying Rally

Prior to our special Halloween dance, several members of the MCDC board and dance community drove to the Mary Chapa school in Greenfield to participate in the the Anti-Bullying Rally, a nationwide effort to show school-age children and their families that community-based alternatives (such as dancing) exist and how much fun it can be for everyone!


With Mary Schaefer volunteering to call and lead this dance event, we engaged a variety of children and their parents, dancing outdoors for more than 30 minutes to prerecorded music.
