Childgrove, in partnership with the Shining Rivers Waldorf School, has begun holding Family Dances from 6:30-7:30pm on First Saturdays. The dance is for parents and children over the age of 6 to enjoy dancing to live music.
If you bring a child, your cost is $5, plus $3 for each child, up to a maximum of $16 per family. You are welcome to stay for the Callers Choice Contra Dance which follows, but if you are not going to stay, we ask that you carefully locate and remove all of your children and belongings quickly to make room for the later dance. :-)
Please bring a water bottle so we can protect our beautiful floor.
