We appreciate the contributions of everyone who brings snacks, pitches in with setup/cleanup, welcomes new dancers, and/or otherwise contributes to the sense of community at Hayward. The Hayward Contra was founded to be a truly *community* dance. We are proud of our success so far in this regard – that so many of you value and feel like a part of the dance – and strive in every way to keep it going.
We have a simple saying that sums up our philosophy:
"Everyone dances with everyone."
We're currently focusing on two specific ways for this to happen:

Many folks enjoy dancing the "other" gender role at Hayward. We encourage this for a number of reasons – it's a great way to try something new, meet and dance with more people, and experience dancing more fully; it also mitigates any imbalance between men and women. So dance with whomever you meet in the line! – a man in the lady's spot or a woman in the gent's is probably in the right place, and even if not, you'll keep the dance moving. Some dancers do find it helpful to see or provide a signal of who is in which role, so we have neckties available for people dancing the gent role.
