Next Contra Dance - Saturday, July 15, 2017


It is hot in Columbia in July, and we will dance to some hot music in the air conditioned Emerald Ballroom! It is Techno Contra time for Columbia!

Victor Gascón will be our caller/DJ in July. Victor prepares fun and challenging programs for Techno dances. Things will start slowly so that newcomers can get comfortable with Contra moves and then the fun will build up from there.
