Kindred Spirits Day of Dance

Kindred Spirits is a full day of dancing, featuring traditional participatory dance - contradance, English Country Dance, and Scottish or other related styles. Unlike many festivals which have different dance styles at separate times or in separate rooms, Kindred Spirits has the main dancing in one room, this year with a single caller who is excellent with both English & contra dance. Throughout the day, the dances alternate between the different styles without delay. It's a great chance to do your favorite kind of dancing while exploring related styles.
