Viewing events for January 2015
Our dances have their roots in the traditional community dances of New England (Learn More...) (Hide)
Date: January 24th, 2015
Time: 7:30pm - 10:30pm
everyone is welcome; no special dress or experience is necessary; and most people will change partners with every dance. If you've never been to a square or contra dance before, you might feel strange at first, but remember, everyone there was a "first-timer" too!
The caller will do one or two "walk-throughs", where he tells what "movements" (such as a do-si-do) the dance will consist of, and everyone walks through the dance, in order to understand it. Then the music will start and the caller will "call" the dance. The caller continues to call or prompt the dance each time through until he is sure people can do it on their own and can simply dance and enjoy the music.
•Wear comfortable shoes and cool clothes, even in winter.
Cost: $7.00 fop adults, $5.00 for students age 12 - graduate school
Band: Root Cellar String Band with caller Drake Meadow
