22nd Traditional Music & Dance Weekend
Our small, friendly music and dance weekend has occurred for 21 years. More than half of the dancers have been before. New folks may come from thousands of miles away. The beauty of this 44 acre island, the peacefulness of being off the main land, and rituals such as waltzing before breakfast and carrying lanterns to the chapel are reasons dancers keep returning. Contra dancing is featured using new and old dances all with professional musicians. Other dances include squares, English country and couples. There is time to relax and explore the island on your own or with a small group. You may watch or join the singing or yoga conferences which are on Star at the same time. Musicians should bring their instruments to join a workshop, jam, play for chapel or make music with the waves. We are a welcoming community who relish the joy of dancing while viewing Gosport Harbor. Come and dance with us!
