Cincinnati Contra Dance Schedule

Our Monday schedule is subject to change without notice. Our bands and callers are free to trade with each other as needed.


The current schedule follows. Saturday and "special" dances are a different color than the Monday dances. Please click here to see the archive of recent dances. Monday dances usually run from 8-10 pm, and Saturday dances typically run from 8-11:30 pm. A free Intro Session is held prior to dances at 7:30 pm.

The local schedule along with regional dances may be viewed in this calendar that has been generously assembled and contributed by one of our dancers. If you have any contributions to this calendar, please send an email to janet at bertog.com.

Troika (Indiana) Frank Buschelmann Our annual New Year's Eve dance is a bit different this year. We will still begin with a community potluck at 6 pm followed by dancing starting at 8 pm. There will, however, be a single band and caller and the cost is $7, the same as our second Saturday dances. The dance will end with the traditional midnight revelry.  Please come celebrate with us!
