He currently calls primarily in the Sacramento region and has led dances for local groups, schools wedding, festivals and dance communities. Music for this dance will be provided by our Community Band, led by Claudia Kirkpatrick. All musicians are welcome to play! Send an email to Claudia ( for a PDF file of the music and the time and place of practice.

A newcomer’s orientation is offered at 6:30 pm, perfect for people who have not contra danced before, or who could use some refresher. Experienced dancers are invited to partner with newcomers during the orientation and early dances to help integrate them into the community.

No partners are needed, so come by yourself or with friends or with family. Potluck snacks are available at the break, and we encourage you to bring something to share. These events are accessible to people with disabilities.
