Family Dance
Aug 12 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Family Dance

A community dance especially aimed at families with children under ten years old. Circles, mixers, long-ways, squares, singing-and-clapping games, and other set dances, carefully chosen considering the motor skills and social development of children ages 4-10.

All dances are taught and called; no experience is necessary and all ages are welcome (pre-teens, as well as adults, who aren’t yet too cool might still enjoy it!) Children must be accompanied by an adult. Energetic, wholesome, high quality, home-made entertainment. Diane Silver leads the calling, an open band plays the tunes.

This event has a Google Hangouts video call.
