Contra Dance

Contra Dancing is a fun activity for ALL ages.  It’s healthy for the body, mind, and spirit!  Join us.  Dance to wonderful live music and great calling at all our Contra Dances throughout the year.  We’ll teach you everything you need to know.

The South Coast Folk Society holds dances on the FIRST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH at the North Bend Senior Activity Center dance hall, from October through May.  Our Curry County schedule includes dances at the Sixes Grange Hall.  See  our 2020 schedule below.

Contra dancing is fun for the whole family – come alone or with friends; wear comfortable clothes and clean, soft-soled, non-marking  shoes.  No experience or partner needed!  The dance starts at 7:00 pm.  Call Paul at 541-404-8267 for more information.

North Bend Senior Activity Center is at 1470 Airport Lane, North Bend,
