|music, contra [html]|
This makes me sad:
There were several obstacles in regard to the music, the first of which was that people did not believe we could dance contra to music that wasn't 'square.' The truth is that square tunes make it easier for the dancers and callers to dance without having to count beats, but one can dance contra to just about anything with a steady 4/4 beat.

You want phrasing, even in techno-contra.
