UM and Missoula Folklore Societies invite everyone to the annual Town and Gown contradance in UM’s elegant University Center Ballroom (3rd floor). The event is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to help cover costs.

Contradances are fun and easy to learn, and participants get to dance with everyone there. No experience or partner is necessary. You’ll find willing partners at the dance. If you can smile and walk at the same time, you can contra dance.

DATE: Nov 2


DANCE: 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Dress is casual, with comfortable shoes essential.


Don't sit at home on a winter night!  Contradancing is fun and requires no prior experience or partner.  See "What is Contradancing?"

NOTE:  The NEXT contradance (Nov 2) is in the elegant University Ballroom on campus.
