Cary Ravitz (Lexington, KY), has achieved international recognition for his creative contra dance choreography. “I want to connect the dancers to the music and the other dancers,” he writes. And does he connect! Cary’s rare ability to combine figures into dances that flow smoothly and blend with the music has delighted thousands of dancers, of all experience levels.
Most callers include Cary’s dances in their repertoire, and are always looking for more. Fortunately, Cary is a prolific writer, with more than 150 contra dances to his credit.
Cary is a regular caller at dances in Kentucky and Ohio, and has called at dance weekends throughout the US and in Canada. He will call the Friday night dance with the Contrarians, and lead workshops, including one on dance choreography, on Saturday.
