Background on the Hayward Contra Dance
For years, the Hayward Contra has drawn dancers from all over the Bay Area and beyond.
Some of the unique features that have drawn a loyal following are:
Hayward is centrally located and the Venue, The Hill and Valley Club, 1808 ‘B’ Street, Hayward, CA, is easy to reach by Bart or car. NOTE: Special events may be held at other venues as needed. Check each event on the calendar to make sure of the dance’s location.
As a weekend dance, we have attracted dancers with busy work schedules.
Meeting in the afternoon from 4-7pm, dancers coming from greater distances were able to manage the travel time both before and after the dances.This time slot has had the added benefit that we did not need to worry as much about disturbing our neighbors at night.
Our venue, the Hill and Valley Club, is one of the airiest dance halls in the bay area.
