Spring & Fall Traditional Community Dances
at Harmony Hall (1401 Peaceable St, Charlton, NY)

Upcoming Dance: On hold -- TBA (due to water damage at our dance location)

Join us in an age-old tradition of community dancing, held in historic Harmony Hall. It's a wonderful way to connect with your community, friends and family. Enjoy a fun evening of forward and back, do-si-do, swing your partner, and more! Dances are easy-to-learn circles, squares, contras and simple folk dances.  Smiles and laughter guarenteed! No experience necessary. No partner needed (just ask another dancer.)

See information below.

Were you there? (Photos by Howie Eskin): Fall 2015 (Nov), Spring 2015 (April), Fall 2014, Spring 2014 (May), Spring 2014 (April), Fall 2013, Spring 2013, Spring 2012, Spring 2011, Fall 2011, Fall 2010 (our first dance!)

No experience necessary - a caller walks you through each step, teaching each move before and throughout the dance, and dances are just walking to the beat of the music.

All ages welcome - bring the young 'uns, and grandma and grandpa, too! Your neighbors! Your friends!

What to wear? - Whatever's comfortable for the time of year, though keep in mind that dancing gets you warmed up. Comfortable shoes/sneakers are best for your feet.
