Welcome!

Lawrence Contra Dance is a folk community in Lawrence, Kansas, featuring live music and spirited dancing on the 3rd Saturday of each month.

In order to support the health and safety of our dance community, LBDA has canceled our regularly scheduled dances until further notice.

Until we can meet again, we would like to invite you to join in the fun and community….online!

Join us Saturday, March 20th at 7pm for an online celebration of St. Patrick’s Day! A local Kansas City band, Into the Sun, is well versed in Irish music and will share with us tunes from the Isles and beyond.

If you are on our mailing list keep an eye on your inbox for more information on how to participate. Information will also be available on our Facebook page soon!

About the band: 

Into the Sun is a Kansas City-based acoustic folk ensemble performing the traditional music of Ireland, America, Canada, Scotland, France, and more. Check out a preview on the band’s YouTube channel.

We hope to resume our monthly dances as soon as possible! Stay tuned for other ways to stay connected during social distancing! Until then, stay safe and be well!
