Our 3rd Saturday dance at the Greensboro Grange always draws a lot of people from the region plus quite a few new people. Come out and meet the new people, help them get started on the right foot, so to speak, and have a good time! Its always great to see those who aren’t able to come to the Winston-Salem area dances.
On Saturday, August 18th, at The Guilford Grange in Greensboro, we once again welcome the multi-talented Maria Fairchild who gets the piano rockin’ and also plays banjo and guitar and Ted Ehrhard who pulls out multiple melodies on fiddle, making it another dancer pleasing evening to enjoy with your friends at the Grange dance. The only other thing needed to make it a great evening is you!
Caller will be Dean Snipes with some mighty fine dances.
Sunday early evening dances are transitioning to mostly 2nd Sundays beginning in August. This is the first of those so go ahead and mark it on your calendar. The lesson for new people is at 5:30 pm and dancing starts at 6 and you can dance as much as you ‘d like until pm. We have a short break in the middle with a few waltzes you can try and to close out each evening we have a final waltz.
“The Stuff” is back to bring us more great dancing music. Great stuff! Gretchen Caverly’s fiddle playing will carry you away with her precise yet freely interpreted melodies. Nic Coker works the guitar, supporting the melody with his creative and fluid rhythm and bass lines. In other words – music that is great fun to dance to!
This night our own Nick Boulet calls dances for the new dancer as well as for the more experienced ones. His relaxed, fun way of calling is infectious making the evening very fun.
Enjoy the great contra connections as we have fun dancing with one another.

The multi-instrumented, multi-talented members of TOI return to bring you an intricate interplay of melodies and rhythms! This 6-7 piece band will keep you dancing all night. Bring friends to enjoy the excitement with you.
Dean Snipes from the Charlotte area entertains us again with his humor and fun during teaching and calling. We enjoy seeing what surprising dances he may call during the evening!
