There are scent sensitive people, so we ask that you be free of strong scents ie: colonge, perfume and cigarette smoke.
We are an alcohol free, accessible event.
Children of all ages are welcome at the dance. Young children...please bring an adult.
We are part of Dance New England, and our community overlaps substantially with local arts and other dance networks.
The Friday Night Dances are a special place. We work hard to make it a safe & enoyable space where magical things can happen.
Please let us know if you"d like to contribute and be involved in creating the Friday Night Dances.
Chrissi and Heather One way to contribute is to come early or stay late by helping set up the dance space, or take down the space. Just ask the manager of the evening how you can help. This only takes about 10 min, and is a HUGE help! :)
You can also help by working a 1/2 hour door slot. There are 5 slots available each Friday night. You get in free that night for your help.
Consider joining the Dance Spree Community Announcements list. Once you have joined, you will receive announcements about events of interest to the community posted by people who attend the dance. You can also post your own announcement about workshops, classes, trips, and other events of interest, that are not held on a Friday night.
