Come Dance with Us!
We are the Houston Area Traditional Dance Society, an all-volunteer organization that sponsors contra and English Country dancing in the Houston, Texas metro area.
Contra dances are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, and English Country dances are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays, of most months. See the Event Calendar for details.
We also sponsor a community band, called Contra Dan's, for musicians who would like to play for dances.

Fire Ant Frolic
Fire Ant Frolic, Austin's annual contradance festival, is October 26-28 this year. Sarah VanNorstrand will be calling to Wake Up Robin. Details at FireAntFrolic.org.
St. Andrews is not renting to outside groups next year, so we need a new place by January. We have formed a Hall Search Committee. If you know of any places we should investigate, please let us know. Email email@example.com.
