Emerald City Contra Dance Set Lists


We started recording set lists in 2019. Callers, if you'd like us to post your previous programs, send them to us at emeraldcitycontra@pobox.com. We try to keep this updated weekly, but don't always succeed. 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 to Chris Page and Michael Dyck.) No guarantees that dances are available there; however, they are always getting new content, so check back later if you don't see it now. Also, no guarantees that we or the callers transcribed the dances correctly.

Here are some of the most-commonly-called dances:
- Airpants by Lisa Greenleaf
- Al's Safeway Produce by Robert Cromartie
- The Baby Rose by David Kaynor
- Chinese New Year by Chris Page
- First Hey by Paul Balliet
- Friday Night Fever by Tony Parkes
- Pinball Wizard by Andrea Nettleton
- Reel Easy by Cary Ravitz

For the sake of variety, please consider calling other dances from your collections.
