Opening Night Contra Dance

Friday, March 22, at 7pm, Mackin Park

Live music by the Sybaritic String Band


Festival du Bois 2019 opens with its third annual Friday Night Contra Dance, featuring live music from The Sybaritic String Band, Vancouver’s premier contradance band.

Contra dancing is fun and friendly social dancing done in lines of couples to traditional music played live. There's a dance caller who teaches "figures" on the spot, like in square dancing, and prompts you during the dance. It's easy!

Come on your own or bring a partner and have a great time!  Everyone, from first-timers to seasoned veterans are welcome at this fun, free evening! 

Suitable for adults and kids who are comfortable dancing with adults.
