Contradancing... to techno???

Apparently, contradancing is getting a new audience. As this video shows, there's contradancing being done to techno music.

I'm not much for techno music, vastly preferring that fiddle-and-banjo crap, but if people learn contradancing, it's all to the good. (Thanks to Anita Anderson for this link.)

To be completely accurate, I'd classify that as 90s club music and not techno. If you want to take a trip down Pedantic Lane, http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/ is a fun place to dabble and learn about the genres and sub-genres.
Also, are you aware of the new wave of Folk-Metal? I recommend Eluveitie as an introduction. They're a Swiss band that sing in Celtic with a hurdy-gurdy and everything. This track isn't too ear-bleedy

Also also, my oso was teasing me about my tendency to dance to dance to anything with a beat. Then we were in Home Despot and he started going "Onntz-Oontz" and I started dancing down the aisle before i knew what I was doing.
