This page is devoted to listing resources about contra dances ranging from dance compositions to e-mail groups, to essays to miscellaneous sites. URLs and e-mail addresses are listed when available. New entries, additional information, and changes in information are always welcome. Links to other pages in the web site are listed at the bottom of the page.

New links are simply new to me, not necessarily new to the World Wide Web. Change in URL means that a link has changed its WWW address or URL.

Definitions and Explanations


One-shot entries in blogs are not included here (try Essays or Newspaper and magazine (non-genre) articles). I have included blogs by bands, musicians, callers, and dancers who keep their blog up to date (at least one entry in the last year) and have included a fair amount of entries about various aspects of contra dancing. I have no expectation that this list is definitive, but I'll keep adding entries as I find them.

*The Colorado link will bring you to Dancing on the Web. The Maine link will bring you to the Downeast Friends of the Folk Arts. The New Mexico link will bring you to the New Mexico Folk Music and Dance Society. The Utah link will bring you to Utah Contradance Information. These fine organizations and individuals already have complete listings for these states and there is no reason for me to duplicate their efforts.

**As far as I know, there are no regular dances or events in Mississippi, South Dakota or Wyoming, but I have created pages if something changes in the future.
