Any and all couples are invited to join us at the Trappe Vol Fire Hall as we add beginner couples lessons starting the first Thursday in April. We will start with some really easy stuff over the first few weeks and then move on. The first couples lessons will be brief, and then they will get progressively longer, as the dances become more challenging.
We have close to 40 couples pattern dances we would like to share with you so there is plenty to keep us busy for a long long time.

Hopefully this well help bring in some new faces to our little Family at Trappe vol. Fire Hall on Thursday nights....for a full line up on Thursday see the info below.
