Contra dancing involves vigorous exercise and contact with other dancers.

Some of our dancers have chemical sensitivities. Please be considerate and refrain from using perfumes and scented personal products such as colognes, after-shaves, and deodorants. Thank you!

For more information on chemical sensitivities.

Note also that Aldersgate Church has a no smoking policy which applies to its buildings and grounds. The church also asks that all forms of tobacco and alcohol be abstained from.

Use of alcohol will impare your coordination and ability to dance well with others.
