So what is this contra dancing thing that I'm so involved in? From the WIkipedia entry... "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 a square.[1] Sometimes described as New England folk dance, contra dances can be found around the world, though they are especially popular in North America."
