Cascade Contras Postponed until 2021

After careful consideration, we have sadly made the decision to cancel Cascade Contras 2020. We all will miss our wonderful weekend dancing together at Skycamp, but it is crucial that we protect our dance community from the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Cascade Contras will not be held in 2020

Mark your calendars for the next Cascade Contras Dance Weekend on October 15-17, 2021! We'll announce the bands and callers for 2021 in the near future. Until we can all dance together again, please keep safe and well.


(See Calendar for more concert dates.  See Music for list view.)


Members receive a $2 discount at regular EFS contra dances, discounts on special EFS events and voting priveleges.

You can sign up in person at any dance, or go to our Membership page and fill out the handy signup form.


The new EFS calendar is up!  Check it out for EFS sponsored events.


We just launched the new, searchable bands and callers database. We're currently adding more bands and callers. If you are a band or caller who has performed or are scheduled to perform for EFS dances, we want you on this list!  If you don't see yourself, please contact us to update your listing.


Morris is a vigorous ensemble dance done with clashing sticks and ringing bells! It's long been performed in the villages of the English countryside. We invite you to join our Two Rivers Morris team. We practice Thursday evenings 6:15. For more info email 2riversmorris@gmail.com .
