Dance those winter blues away with live music and the best dance party in the DMV! For our last square dance of the year we’ve got New York veteran caller Dave Harvey at the helm calling delightful and energetic Old Timey figures. Famed for founding the NYC Barn Dance, Harvey brings the fun with quick, easy-to-follow instructions that promise a rollicking good time for all. As if that weren’t good enough, fellow New York string band the West Hillbillies will keep you light on your feet with fiddle tunes in their distinctive Ithaca style. There’s no better way to get your blood flowing than some boot scootin’ on a chilly December night!
As always, all are welcome – young and old, brand new and experienced dancers. No partner, lessons, overalls or frilly dress needed. Just walk in and dance!
