- Get Up And Contradance! - Filmed in January 2009 at the Veterans' Memorial Building in San Luis Obispo, California, "Get Up And Contradance!" captures the raw energy and raucous enthusiasm exhibited at one of the premier contradance weekends held in the United States called Contra Carnivale. Shot on location by contradance enthusiast David Hill are four different dances that are edited together to appear as a continuous medley. Nils Fredland deftly guides the dancers through their series of moves to the driving beat of Crowfoot, a trio of musicians known for their trance-like grooves.
