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 set, 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 is no required outfits at our square dance. Wear an outfit and shoes that you can move in, are comfortable 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.
These dances are made possible through a Central Appalachia Living Traditions grant provided by Mid-Atlantic Arts
