Elkins Square Dance

December 11, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$6
mountain dance trail community square contra dance wv

Since 1972, Augusta Heritage Center has held dances as a part of their summer programming. This year Augusta is now holding dances once a month all year round. They are held in the Myles Center for the Arts Dance Studio on Davis and Elkins College Campus throughout the year and in the Augusta open air pavilion during the summer. Here you can find both mountain circle and four-couple sets, contras, and an occasional honky-tonk, Cajun two–step,  Irish set and Ceili,  blues, swing. All dances cost $6. $4 for AmeriCorps & Students and free to Davis and Elkins College faculty & staff. https://augustaheritagecenter.org/

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.”

Further details TBA. Dance schedule subject to change. Check the website or call ahead for more info.
