In conjunction with Little Middle Folk School last week, adults had some fun dance opportunities. The Dance Callers’ class gave callers great instruction and practice in calling contra and square dances. With the small class size, students benefited from plenty of personalized instruction and hands-on practice. Of course a contra dance can’t happen without dancers. Dancers also signed up for the week, to be guinea pigs for practicing callers. Energetic live music by Steve Hickman and John Devine kept everyone in high spirits.
