Knoxville Contra Dance at the Laurel

Category: Classes, workshops and Dance, movement

We dance to live music every Monday night, 8-11 pm, at the Laurel Theater (16th St. and Laurel Ave. [directions]) - $8 ($5 for students & those just listening). If this is your first time, come a few minutes early and join our new dancer workshop, where we teach the basics. Beginners are welcome, no partner or experience required. It's easy and fun!

You can burn a lot of energy on the dance floor, so we recommend you wear loose fitting comfortable clothing with layers that you can remove. To save your self some time in the water line, bring a couple of bottles of water with you.

We dance in the historic Laurel Theater, to preserve our dance floor, we request that you wear or bring clean, non-marking, soft-soled or leather shoes for dancing.
