Mostly Waltz for Boston

Waltzes and other couple dances
2–5:30 pm selected Sundays, September through May

Concord Scout House, 74 Walden Street, Concord, Massachusetts (except as noted)

March 11: Music by Eric Eid-Reiner and Dave Langford
This month’s Mostly Waltz begins with a dance lesson, 2–3 pm, by Kent Koeninger: Moves That Engender Smiles – standard windows, windows twisting into face-to-face, leading without touching, and, if time allows, six forward single steps. Following the lesson is open couple dancing with marvelous music by Dave Langford (fiddle, guitar) and The Moving Violations’ Eric Eid-Reiner (piano).

See the schedule page for the 2017–18 season’s dates for the regular Mostly Waltz Sunday afternoon series in Concord, MA and alternate locations. Below are the prices for the regular series:

  • Admission $12
  • FAC members $10
  • Young adults $6
  • Your second time attending Mostly Waltz is FREE!

Beginners, experienced dancers, singles, and couples are all welcome.

The Folk Arts Center and Mostly Waltz for Boston present Sunday afternoon sessions of live music for waltzing and other couple dances. This series duplicates the Mostly Waltz afternoons held in other cities across North America. Mostly Waltz for Boston also presents occasional special workshops in styles such as cross-step waltz.

The regular Sunday dances in this series feature a lesson in waltz basics, figures, or styles from 2 to 3 pm, followed by live music for dancing until 5:30 pm, with intermediate-level “cool moves” or other dance variations taught during the break, 4:10 to 4:30 pm. A variety of waltz tunes and tempos are played during the session; every third number is a different couple dance, such as a polka, hambo, schottische, swing, tango, one-step, blues, or zwiefacher.

Your donations to the refreshment table are much appreciated. To protect the hall’s wooden floor and to make turning easier, please change from street shoes to clean shoes, ideally leather-soled, before dancing. For the comfort and well-being of all our dancers, especially those with allergies or asthma, the Concord Scout House requests that we do not wear perfume or fragranced personal products at its events. Thank you!
