Square dancing event on Saturday

Grav your partner and check it out!
The DC Square Dance Collective is pleased to invite you to our final dance of 2011, this Saturday, November 19. Yes folks, this is the genuine article: a good old-fashioned square dance, the kind that's delighted Americans for centuries in barns, churches, and living rooms all over this land. We'll have live old-time music from string band Hell on the Wabash, featuring Cleek Schrey and Rhys Jones on fiddles, Paul Brown on banjo, Jordan Tice on guitar, and Jason Sypher on bass. Old Man Kelly will be in town from Blacksburg, VA to call the dances. It's another all-star lineup - not to be missed!

Everyone is welcome - no partner or experience required. The caller will teach you all the moves and tell you what to do. Just walk on in and dance!

The dance is held in the beautiful sanctuary of St. Stephens Church, a short walk from the Columbia Heights metro. Many thanks to the wonderful community of St. Stephens for sharing their space with all of us. And thanks to the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, of which we are a part(y).

Date: Saturday, November 19
Time: 8:30 to 11:30 pm
Place: St. Stephens Church, 1525 Newton St. NW, Washington DC
Admission: $5

Look forward to seeing you there!
