Calgary Old-Time Experience is hosting another social square dance! No partner or experience needed. All dances will be taught on the spot, come as you are! Doors open at 7pm, dance starts at 8pm.
Calgary Old-time Experience is a group of musicians, music lovers, and community builders who believe in the power of music and dance to connect people. We offer a hip, re-energized, and inclusive version of the square dance aimed at bringing folks of all ages and walks of life together for a guaranteed good time. Our mission is to create the same energy and social atmosphere seen at dances on the West Coast and Interior BC where a square dance revival has been underway for the last few years.
The square dance will feature experienced caller Leslie Gotfrit and her large repertoire of circles, squares, longways, and mixers to get everyone up and dancing in no time. Calgary-based trio Fire In The Hole will be supporting Leslie playing Southern Appalachian old-time music with a rowdy blend of fiddle, banjo, and upright bass. The band's driving fiddle tunes will fuel the dance and keep your feet moving all night long!
