Wednesday Night Contra & Square Dances
Due to the ongoing pandemic, BFMS is not currently hosting any in-person events. We hope to be able to offer in-person events in the near future! To protect those most at risk of infection from Covid-19, we expect that vaccination and pre-registration will be required when we gather again in-person. Stay tuned for more information - we miss you!.
Admission is $9 for members, $13 for nonmembers. Under 21 and full-time students with IDs: $4 members, $6 non-members.
All dances are taught and walked through beforehand. Music and dance styles include New England, Southern Appalachian, and Celtic styles. Nationally-known musicians and callers appear regularly. These dances are sponsored in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.

Free workshops introducing basic contra dance figures take place every Wednesday at 7:30p.m. Beginners are encouraged to attend.
