WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. —  North Berkshire Community Dance will hold its monthly contra dance on Saturday, March 9.  
Caller Maggie McRae will teach every dance to live fiddle music using gender-neutral phrasing.
According to a press release:
Contra dancing is a living tradition in New England; for hundreds of years, neighbors and friends have made their own social entertainment in this easy and highly collaborative dance form.  All are welcome.
New dancers and families with children are encouraged to arrive by 7:30 for instruction in the basics.
The band, The Vintons, is a new collaboration of three long-time musician friends with a love for the classic New England contradance sound: George Wilson – fiddle, Andy Davis – accordion & piano, and Marko Packard – guitar & flute. 
The dance will run 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. in the Community Hall of the First Congregational Church, 906 Main St., Williamstown. Admission is pay-as-you-can:  $12 - $20 suggested, and barter is also welcome. 
Covid Policy: NBCD encourages masks, but no longer requires them. Be aware that, whoever your partner, you'll wind up dancing with everyone in the room. You may wish to bring a spare mask to change into for comfort throughout the evening.
