Are you a beginner? We strongly encourage you to attend our FREE beginner classes before every dance. Class starts at 7:30 PM. This is your chance to learn the basics of Contra dancing or just refresh what you know.

Please park completely on the grass.  We want to make the roads clear for emergency vehicles to be able to easily get through.  We also do not want to have any problems with the law.  If possible, car pool to save on parking space.  Thank you for your attention on this matter.

Consider serving a term (or two) on our board. Harvest Moon Folk Society is always looking for a few good folks who would help give back to the contra dancing community.
