Bob Isaacs notes: Hailing from Urbana, IL, Orace Johnson was a pillar of the Midwest contra community until his passing in 1991 while contra dancing. This simple dance is as pure as it gets. It also inspired one of the best contra books, Midwest Folklore, a collection of the best dances from the Midwest’s best choreographers.
