Deerfield, NH Contra Dance - Holiday Potluck!

The cost for the evening is $8, payable at the door, to cover the cost of the musicians and caller. 


This month there is planned a potluck supper before the dance -- come early, at 6:15


If contra dancing is new to you, plan to come up to half an hour before the 8 o'clock start time -- experienced dancers will be friendly, welcoming, and ready to help you get familiar and comfortable with the basics. Wear comfortable clothes (attire is very informal). It is recommended to wear soft-soled shoes (although every kind of footwear is likely to be seen, including bare feet). It is worthwhile to bring a water bottle, and possibly some type of sweet snack to share potluck style during the break.

This is a tobacco and alcohol-free event. Dance partners will be readily available, and no experience is necessary -- if you can walk, you can contra dance. Bring your friends. The atmosphere is family-friendly, and newcomers are quickly welcomed into the contra dancing community... there are never any wallflowers at a contra dance.

    The Deerfield Potluck dance should be the 'go to dance' for 1st Saturday in December.
    The potluck was so yummy. The gluten free cupcakes with the home made chocolate frosting was to die for.
    It was a a really fun getting to know other dancers...I have never laughed so much at a contra event. We always tell new people that the contra dancers are good friendly people; it' safe to make mistakes. Last night it felt more like family sitting around the table sharing stories and pictures. People were just being people and yeah- if the same people never contra danced- I could still say I ate dinner with some very good friendly people and a good time seemed to be had by all. The dance was really good too. The hall was filled with people. The whole night was a good time.
    Plus NO squares were called.
