Community contra dances at the grange

DUMMERSTON — An evening of community contra dances will take place at the Evening Star Grange in Dummerston Center on Saturday, Sept. 16, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Andy Davis will be calling the dance. He will be joined by Flicker which features Hilary Weitzner and Ellery Witman on fiddles and Avery Witman on cello. The band is from Brattleboro, and the Village Dance Series is honored to open the season with this extraordinary group of young musicians.

All proceeds from this dance will be donated for hurricane relief in Texas and Louisiana.

Other dances in this series will take place on Oct. 21 and Nov. 18.

The Village Dance Series, now in its twenty-seventh season, provides an opportunity for families and friends to come together to enjoy one of New England's revered traditional pastimes. Prior dance experience is not necessary, as all the dances are taught. All ages and abilities are welcome. There will be a potluck supper before the dance at 5:30 p.m.

The program includes traditional New England contra dances, square dances, circle mixers, and couple dances. Admission is $5 for children, $8 for adults and $20 for families. For more information or directions call Davis at 802-257-1819, or email:
