Or, perhaps more like your great-grandparents did. The Austin Barn Dancers meet every Wednesday for an evening of contra dancing. Think square dancing but less complicated and more upbeat. Sure, at first glance you may wonder why on earth you came and how on earth you’ll remember the steps, but once you get started, you forget that you don’t know what you’re doing. A live-music ensemble keeps you on beat, and veteran dancers will guide you through the steps. Show up at 7:30pm for a quick lesson before the dances begin.
