Oui Bis was born out the contra dance scene in North Texas. The North Texas Traditional Dance Society is a vital supporter of traditional dance music, especially contra dance. Over the years, there have been area dances in communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, starting with dances in Dallas proper and speading to Fort Worth, Irving, Denton, Carrollton, Garland. As the years passed and these locations moved around, coming and going, the members of Oui Bis have been playing contra dance music in bands that also have evolved, come and gone.
We always enjoy playing for the dancers that meet in these locations fostered by the North Texas Traditional Dance Society.
The North Texas Traditional Dance Society is a non-profit educational organization that promotes a better understanding and appreciation of American folk dancing, its music, its history, and related folklore. NTTDS supports traditional music and dance and holds American Style Contra Dancing as well as English Country dance on Saturdays throughout the Dallas area. We are a group affiliate of the Country Dance and Song Society.
