Family Dance

Welcome to the Asheville Area Family Dance!

3rd Sundays of each month Sept-May

3:00-5:00pm

Free admission

Harvest House Community Center

205 Kenilworth Road, Asheville 28803

Come enjoy a tradition of community dance and live music handed down from generation to generation! A dance leader will teach each dance in a way anyone can understand, and the live open band will have your toes tapping no matter what! These simple dances are a good intro for adults and children to traditional social dance such as contra, squares, circles, play-party games, and other formations. We will draw from the American folk tradition as well as a few international favorites. Expect an atmosphere of laughter, encouragement, and connection!

All ages are welcome, no experience necessary. Children must be accompanied by an adult, but adults need not be accompanied by a child.

More details and tips:

Admission is free; donations appreciated but not expected. This event is sponsored by the Old Farmer’s Ball and is run by volunteers. 

If you play an instrument and would be interested in playing in our open band, please contact us here to learn more.

Bring a friend! Your child will have even more fun if they have a buddy whom they already know.   

We suggest comfortable casual clothing and closed-toed supportive shoes with a slick sole (as opposed to good tread). 

Please bring a water bottle!

As per the venue’s policy, masks are encouraged. Please help this intergenerational community stay healthy by staying home if you’re sick.
