Join us for a Square Dance in the beautiful valley of Capon Bridge, WV! 

Square dancing is a traditional form of dance in Appalachia that promotes community connections, physical health and lots of fun and laughter! 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to know how to dance? No! Our square dance welcomes dancers of all skill levels and all age groups. No experience is necessary to dance at a square dance. Prior to the start of each dance, the 'Caller' walks everyone through the steps of how to dance the next figure, and then as the dance is going on, the caller continues to sing/call out directions for the dancers to follow along. 

Do I need to bring a partner? Though in the dance you are often paired up with a partner, you don't need to bring one in order to dance. There are always lots of individuals in attendance looking for a partner to get out on the dance floor with. 

What should I wear? There are no required outfits at our square dances. Wear an outfit and shoes that you can move in, are comfortable wearing and make you feel good!

What should I bring? You are likely to get hot dancing, so be sure to bring a water bottle so that you can stay hydrated. Also bring some cash for the CASH ONLY kitchen where the Capon Bridge Volunteer Fire Department will be selling food and refreshments to raise funs for the Fire Department.

How much does it cost? Admission is on a sliding scale of ‘Pay What You Can’. Suggested donation of $7-15 per person. 17 years and under are always FREE.
