Our featured performers will be Eloise & Co. with Lisa Greenleaf calling and a trio with Ben Foss, Bennett Konesni, and Noah Fishman with Hannah Chamberlain calling.
Please note that we will NOT be holding Friday night contradance in the gym at Mt. Ararat Middle School due to a conflict in the space.
Dancers looking for a Friday night event could consider the dance at the Rockport Opera House organized by Belfast Flying Shoes. This dance also features Eloise & Co. with Lisa Greenleaf, but is a separate event from the festival. More details can be found here: https://belfastflyingshoes.org/calendar/
A “Survivor’s Dance” will be held on Sunday March 17th from 1-4pm with Eloise & Co and Lisa Greenleaf calling at the Topsham Grange. We’ll have group singing before the dance from 12-1pm. This event is a separate ticket from Saturday.
We will continue to post up dates about the festival here on deffa.org and on our Facebook Page.
