Emerald City Contra Dance Set Lists


This is a new tradition we're starting in 2019. Callers, if you'd like us to post your previous programs, send them to us at emeraldcitycontra@pobox.com. I update this about once a month, so if you don't see a recent program, check back in a week or two.

Dances and authors are links to search on The Callers Box (Thanks Chris Page and Michael Dyck.) No guarantees that dances are available there, but they're always getting new content, so if you don't see it, check back later.
