Summer Soirée contra dance weekend is coming back in 2024. Join us for exhilarating workshops, lively dances, and unforgettable experiences. Hosted on the campus of Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina, we gather to dance, learn, and connect. Our talented callers and bands create a lively atmosphere that will keep you on your toes. We'll have three days of contra dancing plus waltzing, blues, techno, and so much more. Also, don't forget to indulge in delicious snacks to power through the weekend. There will also be optional meal and housing plans available.
