Wednesday Night Contra & Square Dances


BFMS is having in-person events again! Being mindful of the need to protect those most at risk of infection from Covid-19, we are requiring pre-registration and proof of vaccination for many events. These requirements may be adjusted depending on the venue (indoor vs outdoor) and the trends of Covid-19. Pre-registration links for each event will lead to both a waiver and payment capability. We look forward to seeing you in-person soon!

The Baltimore Folk Music Society presents American Contra and Square Dancing at 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 PM every other Wednesday at Lovely Lane United Methodist Church, 2200 St. Paul Street, Baltimore, MD 21218.

Admission is $10 for members, $15 for nonmembers, Under 21 and full-time students with IDs: $7 for members, $15 for nonmembers.

All dances are taught and walked through beforehand. Music and dance styles include New England, Southern Appalachian, and Celtic styles. Nationally-known musicians and callers appear regularly. These dances are sponsored in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.

New Dancers' workshops:
Free workshops introducing basic contra dance figures take place every dance evening at 7:30p.m. Beginners are encouraged to attend.
