Village Dance wraps up fall series at Evening Star Grange

DUMMERSTON — An evening of community contra and square dances will take place at the Evening Star Grange in Dummerston Center on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Andy Davis will be calling the dance. Music will be provided by the band Flicker. This is a group of young musicians with Ellery Witman and Hillary Weitzner on fiddles, and Avery Witman on cello. Everest Witman will be sitting in on guitar.

There will be a traditional folk tale midway through the evening. The program will include traditional New England contra dances, square dances, circle mixers, and couple dances.

The Village Dance Series provides an opportunity for families and friends to come together to enjoy one of New England's traditional pastimes. Experience is not necessary, as all the dances are taught. Although the dances are geared for school age children, all ages and abilities are welcome.
