It's a mixture of square dancing and the Virgina Reel. People dance in long lines, couples facing couples across the set. Beginners should come in at 6:30 for basic instruction.
Dennis Riley calls the figures to some of the best New England style dance music you'll ever hear - on C.D. Most of the dances include a walk-thru, so don't be afraid - it's easy. Young children will find this style of dancing a little too advanced so you might want to find a baby-sitter for them. There are lots of teens and college students - along with parents.
Tickets are sold at the door or you can call Sharon Riley for advance tickets.
Contar Dances are the forth Friday of each month. Jan-Nov $10.00 per person.
Enrolled college students: $7.
