Information for Dancers
We are looking for dancers like you… Traveling dancers willing to pack their duct-taped dance shoes and twirliest skirts, and hit the road… Cutting edge dancers willing to take a leap to see that cool new caller from a couple of states over or that hot new band from the opposite coast… Social dancers ready to overload the car with hometown friends, pick up a few more along the way, and head to Atlanta.

Does that sound like you? Here’s the plan…
  • Register and tell all your dance gypsy friends
  • Dance, socialize and have fun for four jam-packed days
  • Mark your calendars and come back again for future Catapults!
Here’s what you get:
  • One-of-a-kind dance weekend showcasing undiscovered contra talent
  • Hot chart-climbing bands
  • Cool rising-star callers
  • 24 hours of contra and 18 hours of workshops over 4 days.
    (See Schedule)
  • Southern hospitality. Sign-up early and we’ll house you with an Atlanta dancer.
  • Braggin’ rights to say “Oh, I danced to them way back in 2017.”

There is nothing like Catapult on the contra dance scene. If in doubt, ask your trend-setting gypsy friends who've already experienced The National Contra Showcase.
