Wasatch Contras is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to the preservation, study, teaching, enjoyment and continuing evolution of American traditional and historical dance, music and song.
We sponsor the Third Saturday Dance in Salt Lake City featuring live music by local and out-of-town bands. Each evening begins with a brief beginner's workshop, and all dances are taught and cued by a caller. The main focus is on having fun. Dress is casual.
