Community Dances

Fun for all ages!

Participatory dancing for the whole family
2–4 pm, selected Sundays, November through March

Concord Scout House, 74 Walden Street, Concord Center, Concord, Massachusetts

Admission $5 per person • $25 family maximum

Co-sponsored by the New England Folk Festival Association and the Folk Arts Center, Community Dances feature supportive teaching of New England contras and squares and international folk dances, appropriate for all ages.

Parents or guardians are responsible for their children at Community Dances. For safety's sake, everyone must dance in shoes, not socks or bare feet.

Please help protect the Scout House's wooden floor by changing from street shoes to clean, soft-soled shoes before dancing. For the comfort and well-being of all our dancers, especially those with allergies or asthma, please do not wear perfume or fragranced personal products at our dances. Thank you!
