It’s Not a Square Dance: It’s a Contra Dance!

    Contra dancing: It has nothing to do with Iran, Nicaragua, or trading arms for hostages. It’s just good old fashioned, really, really old fashioned, country dancing. St. Louisans have been doing since the 1970s. The world has been doing it since the 1600s. Paul Schankman takes us to the weekly Contra Dance is Webster Groves to see what all the stomping is about!
