Dance Organizing Committee

We’re a volunteer-run, non-profit organization that promotes contra dancing and contra dance musicians/callers in Canada’s national capital. During the dance season (September – June), the Old Sod Society holds around three dances a month. We also organize the occasional special event such as an annual dance weekend (Hey Fever!), workshops dances, and concerts.

So who’s on the contra board now? They are…

  • Julie Bishop – President, Season programming, Hey Fever!
  • Catherine Burns – Treasurer, Hey Fever!
  • Stephen Gabe – Secretary, Website, Outreach, Hey Fever!
  • Jane Stallabrass – Director, Board chair, Outreach
