The 2018 Winter Frolic

The Frolics are 2-day intimate revels to one incredible band and your favorite caller, with 9 hrs of contra dancing from Friday evening to Saturday night. You must register to attend the Frolics, so sign-up today!  We have a large hall in Mesa AZ, with room to handle our growing crowds, and space to hang out with friends new and old. Great band, great caller and a great hall! Modest price!


We are only hosting a Winter Frolic in the the 1st half of 2018. We wanted to support dance weekends by other Arizona contra dance organizations. But don't worry! We have more in store, so stay tuned!
