Saturday, Sept. 12

3:00 pm ET Family Dance / 4:00 pm ET Community Dance

3:00 pm ET Virtual Family Dance

Come kick up your heels to live fiddle music. Enjoy a tradition of community dancing and music handed down from generation to generation. We play music and get everyone involved – from ages 2 to 102 — especially those who have not danced before, in easy-to-learn American favorites as well as a few international folk (Chinese, Israeli, French, African, and more) dances. We will focus on dances which can be done alone or with a partner. The toe-tapping music consists of reels, jigs, polkas, hornpipes, and waltzes. Besides fiddle, instruments in the family dance includes banjo, mandolin, guitar, ukulele, While participation in the dancing is encouraged — and it’s hard to sit still — it’s fun to just listen to the music and watch too!

4:00 pm ET Virtual Community Dance

The idea of Community Dance is simple — get a group of people together with some musicians and a “caller” to teach and lead the steps, and dance the night away. It’s a grass roots activity and not an event that requires participants to be serious dancers. Because this is a virtual dance, we will focus on dances that can be done alone or with a partner.  The repertoire most conducive for singles and two people are simple international folk dances.
