"Join us on Saturday, March 17, at Wells Hall and dance to Countercurrent Three, with calling and Waltz Workshop by Lindsey Dono  . . .  For details, see our Dance Calendar page."
Greetings to dancers, bands, and callers! The Tacoma Contra Dance has a great hall, high-spirited dancers, marvelous bands, and entertaining callers. Above all, we have fun!
  • Live and exciting traditional music, with modern touches
  • Singles, couples, and families are welcome
  • No need to bring a partner
  • No experience needed-all dances are taught on the spot
  • Workshops for newcomers before most dances
  • Alcohol-free, smoke-free, and fragrance-free

Dances are held at Christ Church Wells Hall, 310 North K St., Tacoma, WA 98403.

We dance year-round usually on the "third Saturday" of the month but sometimes we dance instead on a Sunday afternoon. For the specific schedule, please be sure to check the Dance Calendar page on this site.

Admission is $10, or $8 for students and seniors (65+), or $5 for dancers under age 18 and over 80. If you bring a family, please ask about a family rate.

The Tacoma Contra Dance is sponsored by the Tacoma Country Dance Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Another contra dance is held in Tacoma on the "fifth Saturday". Different folks run that dance. For details about fifth Saturday, please click here.
