Teen Dance

Social dancing is fantastic for teenagers! But teens are scarce in many dance communities, as they often don't fit comfortably at events with mostly adults or families.

In Philly a great solution has been a monthly teens-only dance, which I coordinate and call. Here's the story of its birth and growth.

The sweet spot for repertoire has been a combination of barn dances and easy (but satisfying) contra dances, with no-role dances especially useful. Many of our favorite dances aren't in wide circulation so I've included them here on the Dances page.
