Traditional music and dance will return to Wayne Center for the Arts this summer!

We are excited to announce a selection of dance and music coming to Wayne
Center for the Arts on select weekend dates this summer! Provided and
performed by local musicians, these events are welcome to all ages 8 or older
with a $5 donation at the door.


● Sunday, June 26 - English Country Dance 4-6 p.m., music by Fourpence
● Saturday, July 23 - Contra Dance 7-9 p.m., music by Marcus Ladrach and
Teresa White
● Sunday, August 7 - English Country Dance 4-6 p.m., music by Fourpence
● Saturday, August 13 - Contra Dance 7-9 p.m., music by Marcus Ladrach and
Teresa White


Ages 8 through adult are welcome, and no experience is necessary. All dances taught and
called by Susan English. The dances are done in sets of couples in longways, circle, or square
formation. It is customary to change partners and dance with everybody in the hall. While
English Country Dance is done with a quiet energy, contra dance, its American cousin, involves
more aerobic turning and swinging.


Musicians will include current and past staff of Wayne Center for the Arts--Mike Deyo on violin,
Stephanie Musselman on keyboard and Bodhran, and Teresa White on banjo and
pennywhistle--along with local artists Cid Cayhoe on accordion, banjo, and pennywhistle, Linda
Hershberger-Kirk on cello, and Marcus Ladrach on fiddle. English Country Dance music 1600
to present is arranged by Mike Deyo.


Dancers should bring a personal water bottle for hydration, with mask optional. A donation of
$5 will be received at the door. Wayne Center for the Arts is located at 237 S. Walnut, Wooster
OH 44691. Please park and enter at the back of the building.


If you have any questions, see Woosterdance.com or call 330-347-8155. You can also call
