Welcome!

The Lawrence Barn Dance Association is a contra dance community in Lawrence, Kansas, featuring live music and spirited dancing on the 3rd Saturday of each month.


LBDA will not host a dance in September. Instead, we hope to see you all in Winfield at the 50th Annual Walnut Valley Festival!

In October, we will be returning to our annual barn dance at Stony Point Barn! Please note that this dance will be held Friday evening. Reid Miller will be calling to the music of Coreopsis. Whether you’re excited to get back to dancing or just wanting to enjoy an evening of music and community, come join us! Beginners are welcome! Per Stony Point tradition, everyone is welcome for a pre-dance potluck with snacks at 6pm.

Friday, October 14th
Contra Dance will begin at 7:30pm
Beginner lesson at 7pm
Stony Point Barn (1514 N. 600 Rd., Baldwin City KS)

Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination or recent test result upon entry. Masking requirement will depend on community transmission level. As of Oct 1, Douglas County is Low Risk and masks will be optional. We ask that you NOT attend if you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have experienced symptoms in the last five days.


Flexible Admission Rates for In-person Dances!
Adult admission: Pay what you can in the range $8 to $15, to help support our dances. Students: $4. Children under 16: $2.

LBDA is dedicated to providing an inclusive community. Your admission/donation helps us provide affordable monthly dances while supporting local musicians, callers, and sound technicians that provide their skills to make these events possible.


The LBDA board would like to thank our community for your understanding as we have navigated the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to resume dancing while maintaining the safety of our community.
