Larks and Robins We dance using the role terms “Larks and Robins.” The “lark” is the same role as “gent,” and the “robin” is the same role as “lady.” Larks are on the LEFT to begin the dance and end the swing. Robins do the same on the RIGHT. To help remember these terms, notice that “lark” and “left” both start with the letter “L,” whereas “robin” and “right” both start with the letter “R.” If you would like more information about these terms, take a look at this summary from the San Francisco dance community.
What to Bring – Contra dancing is energetic!
