since 1988

3rd Saturday of the month (except July-August)

East Concord Community Center

18 Eastman Street
Concord NH

Beginners, singles, families welcome. All dances taught.

Dancing starts at 8 o'clock and ends at 11.
The Pepsi machine is now gone and there's still no water fountain
so it's a good idea to bring a bottle of your favorite non-alcoholic beverage.

Amazing news: as of June 2014, you can actually lock the bathroom doors!!!

next dance


Many locals will remember Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki winning fiddle contest after

fiddle contest as a child. He's gone on to play with lots of bands in different

genres but we're pleased to have him return to his contra dance roots for one night

on the eve of the summer solstice. Accompanying him is Jim Prendergast on guitar.

Making her Concord debut as caller is Sandy Lafleur.

Just a minute off the highway...

From I-93 Northbound, take Exit 16, then your first 3 right turns in a row (they come quickly!).
That puts you on Eastman Street, where the dance is in the 5th building on the right.

If you’re coming from I-89 or I-393, get on I-93 Northbound once you’re in the city and follow the directions above.

From I-93 Southbound, take Exit 16, then a left and 2 rights.
That puts you on Eastman Street, where the dance is in the 5th building on the right.

Also accessible from downtown Concord via the bike path near NHTI
 (but watch out in winter–the path over the bridge doesn’t get plowed).
