Gail Grossman, Bill Letson, Vonnie Anderson, David Kahl, Carol Brown, Moe Cairns and Olivia Stockman Splinter are among the participants during a 2016 contradance session at Cedar Hall at MetraPark.

Knowing that cold weather can be psychologically challenging, Contradance Billings organizers encourage everyone to throw off the wintertime blues and put on their dancing shoes.

Dancers of all ages and levels of experience — singles, families and couples — are invited to a contradance in Cedar Hall at MetraPark, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

Amy Letson, one of the organizers of the dance, and the primary contra caller in Billings, said she finds it extremely satisfying to introduce new dancers to the joy of contradance and the Montana contradance community. She’ll teach a short workshop at the beginning of the evening, providing the beginner with all the basic moves required for the rest of the dance.

Amy Letson will also call the dances, and Copper Kelly will provide the tunes.

Light, loose clothing is recommended, and clean non-marking shoes are a must.

Admission is $8 for Contradance Billings members and $10 for nonmembers.
