Contra Dance @ Tamworth Town House

  • Tamworth Town House 27 Cleveland Hill Rd Tamworth, NH 03886 (map)

The Tamworth Outing Club has sponsored traditional New England square and contra dances in Tamworth since 1937, held on the second floor of the Tamworth Town House in Tamworth Village.

Traditional New England dancing is fun, easy, and family-friendly. If you’ve never done it before, have no fear: if you can walk, know your left from your right, and can count to eight, you can learn the basics in 10 minutes. No one is too young, too old, or too uncoordinated to contra dance. We always dance to live music provided by local musicians playing lively Scotch, Irish, and American jigs and reels.

Visit the Tamworth Outing Club website for a schedule of this year's callers and musicians. $7 entry fee for adults, $3 for preteens.
