The Keene Public Library hosts a monthly free family dance at Heberton Hall  for children and adults of all ages and abilities.

Allison Aldrich will call with Hunt Smith and friends.

Family Dances started at the Keene Public Library in the summer of 2003.  Now the dances are held the first Friday of each month from November through May.  Over the years, the series has become an important library program that helps to develop early literacy skills and is fun too.  Folk dancing helps to encourage the basic concepts of rhythm, repetition, sequencing, patterning, predictability, anticipation, musical cues, auditory discrimination, and counting.  These are all important early learning skills.  Traditional dance also is a great way to introduce children to the world’s rich diversity, to teach the enjoyment of dance, music, and rhythm and to begin a livelong habit of the social enjoyment and physical activity of dancing.
All Family Dances are sponsored by the Friends of the Keene Public Library, the Trustees of the Keene Public Library Endowment Fund, the Keene Sentinel, and Parent Express. Check their online calendar for additional information.
