Brooklyn Contra supports the dynamic cultural evolution of traditional music and dance. We host a season of fun and accessible dances and exciting special events, as well as engaging educational programs for dancers, musicians, and callers.  Brooklyn Contra creates an inclusive and safe environment in order to foster sustainable community growth.
