Top definition
a widely unknown type of community folk dance (at least among children/teenagers).

Simply explained as similar to square dancing, but the couples are arranged in lines. It's quite fun, actually, but no one would know it because no one knows of it.

Moves done throughout the dance include the do-si-do, hey, swing, circle to the left/right, star left/right, gypsy, ladies chain/curtesy turn, right-and-left through, promenade, etc.
Do you know what contra dancing is?
