In earlier times, contra dancing, circle dancing, and other traditional dancing was a common way to pass the time, have fun, and socialize. For the opening of our spring exhibit, Children: Seen and Heard, we are delighted to have Mary DesRosiers leading a family dance. Mary is one of New Hampshire’s finest dance callers,with a deep knowledge of New England folk traditions. On this evening we invite families and individuals of all ages to come and enjoy a variety of dances and singing games. You’ll have a lot of fun, and by the end of the evening, without realizing it, you’ll have learned a little history as well. Randy Miller, one of the Monadnock Region’s most accomplished fiddlers, will be providing music for the event, accompanied by Gordon Peery on piano.
