Second Saturday Contradance in Tamworth

The Tamworth Outing Club is proud to host Second Saturday Contradances at the Tamworth Town House, 27 Cleveland Hill Road, in Tamworth Village. There is also a dance every New Year’s Eve. The TOC has sponsored contradances since 1937, making Tamworth’s one of the oldest dances in New Hampshire.

Dancing starts at 7:00 and goes until about 9:30.

Traditional New England dancing is fun, easy, and family-friendly. Tamworth dances are well-known throughout the state and region as welcoming and multi-generational, with dancers of all ages and abilities gathering to enjoy the company of old friends and new acquaintances. Callers spend time before each set teaching the steps and guiding dancers through parts of the upcoming dance. Experienced dancers are encouraged to help others, so that everyone can enjoy the lively music and congenial mixing and mingling on the floor. Talented callers and musicians from around the region come to Tamworth’s historic Town House to lead dancers through jigs, reels, squares, circles, waltzes, and more.

Come join us for a memorable evening on the dance floor!

Admission is $8 for teens and adults; free for children 12 and under.
