Our major project of the year is the  Fall Folk Festival.
One of our main activities with SFS is Contra Dancing. Contra dancing is a type of traditional dance from New England. Dancers face each other in "contra" lines and move up and down the formation as couples in figures directed by a caller. The Virginia Reel is a dance in this style. You don't have to be experienced - the caller teaches all the moves. Special clothes are not necessary. No partner is needed - Singles and couples are invited. Check the calendar for the contra dance schedule.   Click here more details and some pictures and links to video of a typical local Contra dance.
