I've enjoyed calling and writing contra dances for many years, with the pleasure of leading dance weeks and weekends throughout the US plus forays to Denmark and Canada. Here's a schedule of upcoming calling dates and a history of past dates. I look forward to calling in your town.
Some of my dances have avoided the scrap heap, and one of these days I will surely publish a book of dances. Until then, publishing online is hard to beat.
I've also posted a few thoughts on grid squares, which combine the best features of contras and squares.
