As a community organization, Dance Spree periodically sponsors workshops, seminars, and cultural events in addition to dances. Most of these activities occur on Saturday afternoons and evenings prior to the dance, in the same location. In most cases, admission to the workshop will include free entry for that evening's dance. To have Dance Spree sponsor your workshop, email jasper (insert @ if you're human)




Freedom & Struggle Song Swap
a convergence of the People's Music Network

4th Saturday of each month, 5:00-7:30pm (except June)
71 Federal St, Greenfield MA (MAP)
Suggested donation: $5-$10
- no one turned away for lack of funds



          A place for all to sing! All ages, all talent levels welcome. Bring your own original songs, copies of Rise Up Singing, deep curiosity, your friends and family, and some food for pot luck.
          We'll go around in a circle, and as we do, each of us may choose to sing, request a song, or pass. Spoken word is also encouraged. All participants in the song swap get free admission to that night's dance, and one contributor to the swap may be selected to offer a live music warm-up to dancers.

          The People’s Music Network for Songs of Freedom & Struggle is a diverse community of singers, artists, activists and allies that cultivates music and cultural work as catalysts for a just and peaceful world.

Join us in beginning to dismantle thousands of years of oppression that will provide liberation for all. Until all of us are free none of us are free. All levels of knowledge and experience are welcome.
