Traditional Country Dancing

Would you care to dance? Let’s have a hoe-down! Old-time contras and traditional square dancing provides simple, active fun for everyone, from a barn dance to a Victorian dress ball. Ideal for school events, western hoedowns, community festivals, historic re-enactments. The figures are similar to square dancing. There’s a walk-through prior to each dance, and prompting to the music. You’ll dance with everyone in your set. And when the music stops, thank that partner and find a new one–you’ll get to dance with everyone else in the hall! No partner or previous experience needed; soft-soled shoes and comfortable attire recommended.
