Come out with family or friends for an evening of simple, fun circle, square and whole set dances, called to live music by the McKenzies. No need to come with a partner and beginners are welcome. Children under 6 free. Register for $5 in advance or $8 at the door.
Circles, squares, whole set and contra dances – some call an evening of these kinds of dances a “barn dance.” Others use the terms “hoedown,” “family dance,” or even “barnless dance.” We have tended to settle on the phrase “traditional community dance,” or just “community dance.” Whatever you call it, it’s a great way to connect with friends and family through music, using dancing as the medium.
