Our Family Dance

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.
