DUMMERSTON—A community contra dance will take place at the Evening Star Grange in Dummerston Center on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Calling the dance will be Marguerite Durant. Music will be played by fiddler Amy Cann and friends.

The Village Dance Series provides an opportunity for families and friends to come together to enjoy one of New England’s revered traditional pastimes. Prior dance experience isn’t necessary, as all the dances are taught.

Although the dances are geared for school-age children through adults, all ages and abilities are welcome. There will be a potluck supper before the dance at 5:30 p.m.

Other dances in this series will be on Oct. 20 and Nov. 17. All dances take place at the Evening Star Grange.

The program includes traditional New England contra dances, square dances, circle mixers, and couples dances. Admission is $5 for children, $8 for adults and $20 for a family.
