Now is the time to register and make your flight plan for the second Supersonic Contra Dance Weekend in Seattle! February 1-3, 2019 at the Leif Erikson Hall in Ballard.
Supersonic is a zesty, high-energy all contra weekend for experienced dancers.
This year at Supersonic all dances will be called using Larks and Ravens.
The “lark” is the dancer who ends the swing on the left, and the “raven” is the dancer who ends the swing on the right. If you are an experienced dancer who has not yet danced to Larks and Ravens, now is your chance. You’ll most likely find that it will take a just a few dances to get accustomed to the terminology. The January 31 Lake City Contra Dance will also use Larks and Ravens.
Our mission: Supersonic Contra Dance Weekend gives experienced dancers the opportunity to explore ways in which to challenge themselves and improve their skills as dance partners while experiencing complex dances and immense joy.
Is Supersonic right for you? We begin the weekend with no walkthrough contra corners. Are you comfortable navigating complex dances often with no walkthroughs or hash calls? Do you recover quickly from mistakes? If you answered yes, this weekend is for you.
