Childgrove Family Dance (on hiatus)
Alas, we have had to put the Family Dances on hiatus until further notice. Although the folks who came reported having a truly wonderful time, not enough of them showed up over time to cover expenses, and we've had to cancel them. If you, or anyone you know, would like to help us recruit families to come to the dances, we'd be more than delighted to start holding them again!
If you'd like to have a family dance at your church or school (they are great bonding experiences!) contact us! We can provide a caller, musicians and a sound system for a reasonable price. The dances provide exercise, mental stimulation and social interaction in a safe, fun environment - fun, easy, live music! What's not to like? Contact Bob Green at
ABOUT THE FAMILY DANCES (when we held them)
All are welcome: young and old, new dancers and experienced ones! Bring yourself and your children or grandchildren. We call simple, fun dances anyone can do to live music. All of the dances are designed so that children who are uncomfortable dancing with people they don't know yet can stay with the person they chose to dance with - a parent, grandparent or friend.
DO I HAVE TO KNOW HOW? No prior experience is necessary to enjoy the dance. All of the dances are taught and walked through, and when the music plays, the caller continues to prompt the dances. There is usually much laughter and fun, and "mistakes" are treated as a part of that fun.
WHO: Children and adults of all ages are welcome. We've seen 4-year-olds who get awfully good at this, but it's probably better for children age 6 and up. We choose dances that are fun for kids to do with their parents or each other, so please come prepared to join in!
