Great American Square Dance Revival

Event Details

Things that keep us warm in the chilly winds of December: (1) long johns, (2) hot apple cider, (3) that sweater from your Aunty Sue, and… (4) SQUARE DANCING! It’s our last square dance of the year, and we’re wrapping things up right. Hometown favorite Dave Hauver calls the dances to the hoppin’ old time tunes of super-group Old Reliables. That’s Jenny Monfore on fiddle, Larry Unger on guitar, renowned banjo player Riley Baugus, and everyone’s favorite bassist, Alex Lacquement.

As always, all are welcome – young and old, brand new and experienced dancers. No partner, lessons, overalls or frilly dress needed. Just walk in and dance!

Doors at 8:00 pm; dancing 8:30 to 11:30 pm.

Admission is $5 cash or check. Sorry, no credit cards. Snacks and drinks to share are encouraged. **Bring yer cups! (see below)**

Folks outside the neighborhood, consider biking or taking the Metro! Saint Stephens is a short walk from the Columbia Heights station on the green/yellow lines. For drivers, there is some street parking and a garage below the shopping mall on Park Rd. at 14th St.

This dance is sponsored by the Folklore Society of Greater Washington.

**Special Request: Do you have any of those sturdy plastic cups from various events malingering in the back of the drinking glass cabinet? Would you be willing to donate them to the DC Square Dance? If so, bring’em! We’re trying to phase out the glass mason jars!**
