North Berkshire Dances are held on the second Saturdays of the month from 7:30 to 10 PM in the community hall of the First Congregational Church, 906 Main Street, Williamstown, MA. Dances include contras and squares all done to great live music. The sessions are open to beginners, families, and life-long dancers! All dances are taught and no partner is required. Come alone or bring a friend or two.
As a community dance in a small college town, we welcome people of all ages and backgrounds into the ever-changing tradition of New England contra dance. Some of the dances are hundreds of years old, some are recently composed; all are good fun and a pleasurable occasion for meeting and interacting with people both new and familiar.
The dances run 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. on the second Saturday (most months) in the Community Hall of the First Congregational Church, 906 Main St., Williamstown. Admission is pay-as-you-can, $12 – $20 suggested, and barter (especially help with cleanup) is also welcome.
Covid Policy: starting fall of 2023, masks are optional, and we are no longer checking vaccination status.
We send a quick email reminder once a month before each dance. If you would like to be included, you can subscribe here.
