Arden Contra Dance News

Important News

The Arden Contra Dance is a special place to dance to live music and to have fun with old and new friends. We are blessed with great musicians and callers, supported by our talented sound team. We have a beautiful hall, and the support of the Arden Club as a whole.

We face some important challenges:

  • The Arden contra dance lost $600 in the last full fiscal year. The loss continues in this new fiscal year.
  • Attendance at Arden contra dances needs to be higher.
    • The average paid attendance per dance is between 35 and 40 dancers.
    • We need an average of 50 or more dancers to have a healthy series.
    • We would like to attract a bigger core group of dancers who live within 30 minutes of Arden.
  • We need more people to help run the dance. The 5 people on the current committee have other commitments and may not be able to run the dance in the future.

What can you do to help?

  • Come to the Arden contra dance often.
  • Bring your friends. Have fun dancing together.
  • Join us on Facebookfacebook, and share photos with your friends.
  • Volunteer your time to help run the dance.
