Second Saturday Contradance in Tamworth

The Outing Club has sponsored contradances in Tamworth since 1937. The dances are held on the second floor of the Tamworth Town House, at 27 Cleveland Hill Road in Tamworth Village. Dancing starts at 7:30 and goes until about 10.

Starting on May 12, 2018 there will be a dance on the second Saturday of each month, year-round. There will also be a dance on New Year’s Eve.

To help kick-start this new dance series, the Outing Club will join with a different Community Partner each month. In May, we give an appreciative welcome to our friends at the Tamworth Farmers Market as our first co-sponsor. May 12 is also opening day for the outdoor Tamworth Farmers Market, held on Saturday mornings from 9-1 at the Unitarian Church parking lot in Tamworth Village.

Traditional New England dancing is fun, easy, and family-friendly. Tamworth dances are well-known throughout the state and region as welcoming and multi-generational, with dancers of all ages and abilities gathering to enjoy the company of old friends and new acquaintances. Callers spend time before each set teaching the steps and guiding dancers through parts of the upcoming dance. Experienced dancers are encouraged to help others, so that everyone can enjoy the lively music and congenial mixing and mingling on the floor. Talented callers and musicians from around the region come to Tamworth’s historic Town House to lead dancers through an evening of jigs, reels, squares, circles, waltzes, and more.

Come join us for a memorable evening on the dance floor!

Admission is $7 for teens and adults; $3 for children 12 and under.
