|Description:||TDSC is a nonprofit educational organization that is dedicated to the preservation, study, teaching, enjoyment, and continuing evolution of traditional and historical dance, music, and song, including folk and popular musical forms from a variety of ethnic and cultural traditions, especially contra / traditional New England folk dancing and English country dance.
There is an optional Beginner's Workshop offered 20 minutes before each dance.
Wear comfortable, non-marking shoes to protect your feet and our floors - a separate pair of dance shoes works best.
You'll be more comfortable in loose-fitting light-weight clothing. Also, please note that many dancers are very sensitive to fragrances and body odor and that our dances are fragrance-free events.
Each of the dozen or so dance forms during the evening are taught and prompted, except for the waltz and hambo.
