A traditional community dance is scheduled on Friday, May 31, from 6:30 until 8:30 pm, in The Great Room of Newtown Congregational Church, 14 West Street, Newtown, CT.
Dance Caller Patricia Campbell and The Reel Thing Band will lead people in circle, square, and longways dances (think Virginia Reel or Jane Austen).
The dances are easy, and no prior experience is necessary. All are invited — beginners, singles, couples, groups. A goodwill donation is appreciated, but there is no cost to attend.
Each dance has a ‘walk-through’ before dancing to the music, still with the caller reminding people of each next dance figure. Dances offer lots of fun, laughter, and “if you do get mixed up, it only adds to the helpful interaction,” according to Ms Campbell. “It’s the most “user-friendly” type of dance,” she added.
The dance is sponsored in part by Newtown Congregational Church and by the Outreach Fund of the Country Dance and Song Society.
Refreshments will be donated by Butcher’s Best of Newtown; Coffee by Redding Roasters of Bethel, CT; Tea by Simpson & Vail of Brookfield, CT.
