Save the date for the second Supersonic Contra Dance Weekend in Seattle!

February 1-3, 2019

Supersonic is a zesty, high-energy all contra weekend for experienced dancers.

We will be dancing primarily complex contras with limited or no walkthroughs. Many participants easily dance both roles and role switching is common.


We're excited to have an exceptional set of musicians and callers in store for the next Supersonic!


Supertrad is an east coast supergroup, a veritable Avengers of the modern contra dance scene. Dave Langford (of the Latter Day Lizards) Owen Morrison (of Elixir) Sam Bartlett (Notorious, Stringrays) and Eric Schedler (of the Cosmic Otters) combine musical forces to fight evil and to provide the global dance community with a vibrant energy of unknown potential. Though Supertrad’s music is steeped in the subtle intricacies of old-time, Irish, and New England tune traditions, they play with a groove and insistence more akin to the pulse of modern music.

The band is rumored to practice their music in electromechanical suits of armor, but every contra dancer knows these are some extraordinarily gentle and friendly dudes to spend a weekend with.
