Contralab was founded by a group of concerned contra dance leaders from both the folkdance and western square dance movements. The charter meeting was held in Indianapolis, IN in June 1986. The organization still has much of the founding membership.

The by-laws were presented to the second meeting held in 1987 in Houston, TX., and were ratified by a plurality of members present.

Since this time we have grown in membership to more than 100 members from around the world.


The stated purpose of the organization is the promotion of and education for contra dancing in all its forms and styles.
