Dunmore Square Dance

November 7, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$4

 

Nestled among the giant spruce trees of the Monongahela National Forest less than ten miles from the Virginia line the Dunmore Community Center hosts Saturday night square dances on the first saturday of the month, when the weather permits. Ellen & Eugene Ratcliffe and Tom Sharp call mountain circle square dances to the music of Juanita Fireball and the Continental Drifters, and Mud Hole Control. Dancing gets underway at 8pm, and refreshments are available. Admission is $4, and free for students. The Dunmore Community Center is located off of Route 92 and 28.

Traditional four-couple set square dances and mountain circle, also known as “big circle,” dances are called by local dance callers to live old-time music. “Round dances,” such as waltzes and two steps are often played between squares at most locations. No experience or partner is required. Whether you dance or not, the joy of square dancing to live fiddle music entertains both dancers and wall flowers alike. Beginners and children are always welcome, and as caller Mack Samples says, “These old dances are simple, you can learn them in no time.”

More details TBA. Dance schedule is subject to change. Please check website or call ahead.
