Dances

FSGW sponsors or co-sponsors more than 200 social dances every year, featuring a variety of traditional dance styles, with delightful live music and cheerful, patient and skilled callers. Weekly events include American contra and squares every Sunday night and English Country dance every Wednesday night. Monthly events include a Family Dance and several co-sponsored American contra dances. 

There are also several annual dance events:  Chesapeake Dance Weekend in April, held at nearby Edgewater, Maryland, the Washington Spring Ball in May, the Hashdance Weekend in July, ContraStock in the fall, and two New Year's Eve gala events to wrap up the year.

Looking for international dancing?   FSGW cosponsors International Folk Dancing in Bethesda and International Folk Dancing in Greenbelt.

People of all ages and skill levels attend and are welcome at FSGW dance events. No partner or experience is necessary. Just bring some comfortable shoes and a smile. We'll have you out on the floor in no time!
