Community dances and family dances are occasions to connect to the old traditions of group dancing as a delightful social activity for people of all ages, whether or not they have ever danced before. These dances are fun, easy, celebratory: they bring people together in a joyful way. Family dances are specifically designed for children and their parents and other family members to engage in together. Community dances have a general focus on simple, enjoyable dancing for all; families are welcome at a community dance, too.
