What we're about
• Lyrical tunes played over a steady rhythm and a driving beat that keep you on your toes, all night long.
• Dancing in long lines with your partner and your neighbors while moving up and down the line so you dance with everyone in the hall.
• A tradition of changing partners with each dance and a culture where dancing with strangers doesn't feel weird.
• A caller who teaches each dance before it begins and continues to call as long as needed.
• A room full of people who mostly know what they're doing, so if you don't, they'll help you out.
• An entrancing synergy among dancers, musicians, and caller.
• Snacks at the break.
• More dancing after the break .
• A hundreds-year-old New England tradition held in an old New England, white clapboard church across from the Green.
