New Start Time for 2nd Saturday Contras (starting in July)

Due to the neighbor's noise complaints, we have decided to end our contras at 10:00, when Wethersfield’s stricter nighttime noise limit takes effect. We can’t simply start our dances earlier because another group rents the hall before us, leaving us insufficient setup time.  So, beginning with our July 11 contra, we will dance 7:30-10pm (newcomer's workshop at 7:15).  We’ll try this arrangement for the next few months, possibly adjusting further based on that experience. (Note that June contra is unchanged at 8-11pm)

Free Admission to July Contra

The July contra dance (7:30-10pm) will be free admission for all dancers (though we'll gladly and gratefully accept donations), thanks to Contra Committee member Jen Jasenski, who wishes to celebrate her own (and regular dancer Cate Mahony’s) birthday by treating all to a free dance. Please join us for the contra and birthday cake with Jen and Cate!

HCD Toll-Free Number Discontinued

Due to its having had very little usage, we have discontinued our 800 number.   Contact information of each of our dances is listed on the individual dance pages (tabs at left).  Information on dance cancellations will be posted right here on the HCD main page. 

Bad Weather / Emergency Cancellations

Please check our webpage the day of the event - after 3pm for evening events, and after noon for Sunday waltz events
