No HCD Quiet Corner Contra dance in July or August.

Quiet Corner Contra dances are held on the first Friday of each month (except no dances in July and August) at the Patriots Park Lodge, Coventry, from 8:00–11:00 p.m., with a free workshop for beginners from 7:45–8:00. We have a live band at all our dances, and each dance is taught and prompted by a caller. Our dances are smoke-, alcohol-, and fragrance-free. Find our more about contra dancing in general here, and read about our other monthly contra dance, the HCD 2nd-Saturday Contra dance here.

The regular adult admission for our monthly contra dances is $12. Students (with ID, please) are asked to pay $6, and children 12 and under are admitted free of charge. There is no additional charge for the home-made refreshments we provide, nor is there an extra fee for enjoying the awesome view of Coventry Lake. If our admission charges represent a hardship for you, please let us know. We are willing to work with you.

No extra charge for the yummy snacks at our dances, and we invite you to bring home-made goodies to add to the refreshment table.
