Event description

Description

Contra Surf!: CCD's 42nd annual November Dance Weeekend in Atlanta, GA! Join us at the Decatur Recreation Center as we all catch a wave with the Syncopaths, Toss the Possum, ContraForce, Gaye Fifer, Seth Tepfer, and Jesse Edgerton!

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Supervised, well-behaved children are welcome in the dance hall.


What about food?

This year, we’re again offering a Sunday community potluck brunch; please bring an offering. All other meals are on your own; there are several restaurants within walking distance. Please bring your own mugs and water bottles.

Housing options?

We have a limited amount of housing with local dancers. Please note your needs in the Housing information section of the Registration form and send in your request before October 21!


Footwear or fins?

The DecRec staff has strongly requested that we not damage the finish on their basketball floor (and so prohibit hard-soled shoes, boots, and scuff-marking shoes from the floor). Please help us keep the owners of the floor happy with us!

Warning! The finish on basketball floors is designed to "grab" (i.e. provide a lot of traction for) rubber-soled shoes and can raise your risk of knee or ankle injury if you try to swing/spin while wearing athletic shoes. So please wear clean, soft-leather-soled, non-marking shoes or plan to dance in socks instead.

Should I dress up for Saturday Night's "Beach Blanket Contra?"

Absolutely!! You will never get a better chance to channel your inner Gidget or Moondoggie. Ss start canvassing your closet or the nearest yard sale now for hawaiian shirts, sarongs, coconut bras, grass skirts, leis, hibiscus flowers, and stuffed humuhumukununukuapua'as (a.k.a. the Hawaiian state fish).

Do you have to be a really experienced dancer to attend this weekend?

Absolutely not!! If you have been to our regular Friday dance even once, you are strongly encouraged to come to the Festival; you'll be fine! And while there is no time set aside for first-time dancer lessons, fast learners are invited to pair up with an experienced partner* and give it a try, too -- the other dancers will help keep them afloat.

*WARNING: If you are a first time dancer, do NOT make the mistake of pairing up with another inexperienced dancer -- that risks creating the contra equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle as you go up and down the line.
