Welcome to Blue Ridge Country Dancers contra dance page with information and scheduling for our Floyd contra dances. It's not necessary to bring a partner, but we do insist on clean, soft-soled shoes. All dances are taught; beginners are welcome. The caller will conduct a beginner's workshop before the dance.
Blue Ridge Country Dancers sponsor the second Saturday contra dance in Floyd at the Floyd Center for the Arts, 1/2 mile from the stoplight in Floyd on Rt 8 South. We will be dancing in the community room on the second floor.
