- Square & Contra - With Workshops for Callers and Dancers
May 4, 2019
the first half of the 20th century, before the days of movies, TV
and electronic devices, one of the most popular forms of entertainment
in New England was square and contradancing. Both use similar moves,
but one is done in squares and the other in lines. These dances
were done in kitchens, living rooms, barns and in community halls.
People of all ages, from kids to old folks joined in. There were
local musicians and callers who played for and led the dances.
In order to to encourage this wonderful tradition in our area the
Jamaica Community Arts Council, and the West River Community Project
are sponsoring the dance with live music by local musicians and
Sally Newton as caller. The dance will be preceeded by some workshops
for callers and beginning dancers.
