St. Stephens Episcopal Church

It’s that time again! Dust off your dancing shoes and join us for another rollicking good time at St. Stephens on Saturday, June 25th. This is a real, traditional square dance, like the ones that used to be held in barns, halls, and houses all over the country. We’ll have a caller to teach you the moves, and a great band playing live old-time music. All ages welcome; no partner, experience, or fancy dress needed.
This month we’ve got an excellent band lined up – the Possum Posse – featuring Beverly Smith on fiddle, Erica Weiss on guitar, Paul Brown on banjo and Ann Porcella on bass. Janine Smith and Beverly Smith (no relation!) will be calling the dances, along with special guests from the afternoon calling workshop.
All that talent for just $5 – can’t beat it with a stick!
Location: The dance is a short walk from the Columbia Heights metro. Find us in the main sanctuary of St. Stephens Church – come right on in through the front doors (not the side doors that are used for many events at St. Stephens).
