All Hands In is the home of live online contra dancing.
In March 2020, many dance communities organized online virtual contra dances as a response to the pandemic. By summer 2020, these communities were bringing dancers together from across North America and beyond.
In September 2021, the Atlanta, Glen Echo, Mt. Airy, and Toronto communities combined resources to create All Hands In. Each group hosted a Saturday evening dance for the first four weekends of the month; fifth Saturdays were designated as game nights.
In June 2022, our founding communities returned to in-person dancing. All Hands In continued with a consolidated team of organizers. Programming shifted to first and third Tuesdays to prevent scheduling conflicts for bands and callers. Alternate weeks feature a variety of community-led events.
We look forward to your joining us at the online contra dance!
