A contradance series on second Saturdays at the Capital City Grange in Montpelier. We are an inclusive, welcoming dance community that fosters consent, communication, and learning new dance skills.
In addition to contra, we offer a different featured dance at the end of each night, with a mini workshop before the break. Featured dances have included blues, swing, English, waltz, Cajun, techno contra, and challenging contra.
The Exchange is an inclusive, intentional community for all. Our dance is a creative, informal, and accessible space for contradancers to learn and practice new dance skills together. We strive to foster a welcoming, respectful, comfortable and vibrant dance atmosphere.
$12–$6 sliding scale.
The dance needs 91 dancers at an average of $10 each, or 107 dancers at an average of $8.50 each, to break even.
