Contra Dancing

Contra dance (also contradance, contra-dance and other variant spellings) refers to several partnered folk dance styles in which couples dance in two facing lines or in a group of four. It originated from English country dance and French dance styles. Considered a type of social dance, contra dancing involves steps that require a partner. The accompanying music for contra dances includes Irish, Scottish, old-timey and French-Canadian folk tunes. The fiddle is considered the core instrument, though other stringed instruments such as the guitar and mandolin are used as well.
