May 6th and Summer Dances

Our May 6th contra dance will feature guest caller Margaret Glenn with Pocketful o' Gimmick 7:00-10:00 p.m. at VALLEY COLLEGE GRANGE (2411 Shreve Road, Wooster, OH 44691).

Please help us find place for SUMMER DANCES that is either open-air or air conditioned.  You pick a date, time, and place, and we can make it happen.  It could be anywhere that works for you and your dancing friends.  Just message  woosterdance@gmail.com.


Sept. 23 dance at the MOHICAN SAILING CLUB, then return to Valley College Grange in October for a new season of monthly contra and English country dances.  Anyone with creative ideas?  Help us plan a Jane Austen Ball sometime in the winter or spring.


Come practice with The Madrigal Dancers 



and check here for upcoming events, plus  Video Playlist with (hopefully) videos of the Berea Country Dancers' trip to China!
