next gig - May 30 - with Clusterfolk - Tucson, AZ


oh, hi!

I'm Tavi Merrill, contradance caller, Boston-bred and a Tucson transplant.

Unfamiliar with contra? It's two centuries worth of human-powered dance trance, constantly evolving, almost always done to live music. Here's a few of my favorite videos of contra in action.

Seasoned contrarian? Peruse the site for more about my calling, including videos and original dance sequences. I'm honored to be part of a great dance community here in Arizona, and looking forward to begin booking tours again as a stable day job allows. Feel free to send me an email!
