The Downtown Amherst Contra Dance prides itself on being a very safe and welcoming community. If you ever have physical or emotional safety concerns at our dance, please reach out to a committee member and we will attend to the issue as quickly as possible. Committee members are identifiable by our buttons, which say "committee" and have a ribbon around them. Help us make our dance as safe as it possibly can be for you and everyone else!
