Amelia Fontein grew up in Tinmouth, VT, and she has been contra dancing since she was in the womb. Her parents are avid dancers, and she feels fortunate to have been indoctrinated at an early age into the glorious contra dance community. Amelia attends regular dances and dance weekends throughout New England, and loves every second that she spends on the dance floor. Amelia started calling with the Mad Robins when she moved to Burlington to attend the University of Vermont, and the collective has been an amazing way for her to develop her calling (and dancing) skills in a warm, supportive environment. She’ll see you on the dance floor!
