In Berea, Kentucky, we enjoy live music and many traditional forms of community dance! On the fourth Saturday of every month except December, we hold a contra dance at the Russell Acton Folk Center. On the third Friday of most months we hold a smaller homestyle dance nearby. And we party!! 


Contraire Dance Association (CDA) is a non-profit educational and cultural organization. The purpose of CDA is to introduce, promote, and advance traditional American contra, quadrille, and other social dance in Berea and surrounding areas. CDA is a member of the Country Dance and Song Society and supports the aims and goals of the CDSS. CDA is also affiliated with the Berea Folk Circle Association.
