The Montague Square Dance is a community event that generally happens on the first Saturday of every month from October to May, 7-10 PM. We feature local and regional musicians playing mostly Southern-style Old-Time stringband music, and callers from around New England who call both traditional Southern and traditional New England square dances. Depending on the night, there will also be waltzes and sometimes polkas, honky-tonk or Cajun songs for two-stepping, music just for fun, etc. All the dances are taught and no experience is necessary. There are often informal jams in the basement during the dance, and occasionally there are square-dance calling workshops and other things like that. We aim to provide a good time for all different sorts of people, young and old, and carry on the tradition of people making and enjoying their own entertainment.
The cover charge for the dances is usually $5-10 sliding scale, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds
