Event Description

Dancers at a special dance at the DoSeum in 2016

Traditional Anglo-American dance, with LIVE MUSIC, brought over by immigrants from England, Ireland, Scotland and France and made uniquely American in New England during the 1800's and 1900's. NO PARTNER NEEDED nor any lessons; every dance is taught. This style of dance involves walking briskly in time to the music and can be learned in about 15 minutes. Wheelchair users can also do many of the dances. Live music provided by local bands includes Celtic, Appalachian, Western tunes with some occasional Cajun and Blues. Come try it! Money-back guarantee. No smokin' no drinkin'--just FUN!
