24th Traditional Music and Dance Weekend

September 15, 2017 to September 17, 2017

Our small, friendly music and dance weekend includes contra, square, English county and couple dances. Other highlights include waltzing before breakfast, music workshop and jams, a staff concert, our participatory service in the candlelit chapel, and polar bear dips. While waiting for the ferry on Sunday afternoon, we also organize a dance open to everyone on the island. Our relaxed schedule includes time to explore rocky trails, venture into Gosport Harbor in a kayak or rowboat and enjoy the rocking chairs and island air. The conference website has more details, including biographies of our staff. Register online or contact the conference registrar.
