It's called Contra Dancing ... from http://www.sbcds.org/contradance/whatis/ ...I'm intrigued by you country dancing! what sort do you do?
A caller, usually working with a group of live musicians, guides new and experienced dancers alike through a variety of dances. A dancer and his or her partner dance a series of figures, or moves, with each other and with another couple for a short time. They then repeat the same figures with another couple, and so on. The figures are similar to those of old-time square dancing. The figures are combined in different ways for each different dance.
** EDIT ** to add this Youtube link for any contra geeks or punishment gluttons:
I wound up not going though ... I went down my icy steps yesterday ****-first and it just didn't bode well for two hours of jumping and spinning. I used to be a hardcore regular, traveling to other cities many Saturday nights just to jump and spin. It's one thing that made me fall in love with Systema - some of it feels downright ballroom. I have a hard time occasionally with not suddenly dipping. I don't think the teacher would appreciate high heels on the mats though. :wink1:
