Hey, Contra-Folks!

Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, DJ Beats & Tea live mixes techno music and brings sick beats to create a unique contra atmosphere. 

Traveling all the way from Ohio, the incredible Emily Abel will be leading us throughout the night with her melodic voice!

Time: 7:00pm beginner's lesson, 7:30-9:30pm dance

As always, no partner or experience necessary! Bring your friends and a water bottle. Gender-role-free calling!

We hope to see you there!
