Camp Black Lotus

Burning Man is unique in its ability to shock people out of their everyday routines – both physical and mental – and leave them open for radical change. We’ve become skilled at recognizing when people are ready to change direction, and helping them dig out and uncover ideas about what those new directions might look like.

Magic and ritual use a combination of physical, emotional, and mental transformations that work. They’ve been developed and tested for tens of thousands of years, across every culture known to man, and keep converging on the same basic methods *because* they work. While modern culture provides many benefits – ready access to food, to health care, to shelter, to conveniences and entertainment and distraction – those same benefits can separate us from the flow of life that we originally evolved within. Magic and ritual seem so powerful to modern humans precisely because, for the most part, they have never experienced them directly.

Let’s fix that.

Experience the tribal, hypnotic magic of contradancing to amazing live music – everything from traditional celtic to an electronic mix of DJ’d records and live instruments.

Contra is fast-paced yet easy to learn with a caller who instructs, but with room for dancers to improvise and embellish. There is no need to arrive with a partner – most dancers swap after each dance. Lines of couples flow through each other creating a bonding, playful, noncompetitive, all-ages community dance. There is no required footwork and contra is possible for many with disabilities. If you are smiling, you are doing it right. Everyone who shows up will have fun.
