About the Orange Blossom Ball

Orange Blossom Ball contra dance weekend is a zesty, urban-style dance weekend featuring great music and friendly, competent calling. Half the dance sessions will feature “dual callers” with alternating male/female voices to enhance the dancers' experience. There will be no contra teaching, very limited dance walk-throughs, and many no-walk through dances. We're gender balanced, so please try to sign up accordingly.
