Barn Dance for All (2021 program)

Claire Takemori
Room / 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Real-time event on festival day with pre-registration required. You can find the registration link near the top of the program page when the link is ready.

Great music and lots of fun! If you miss dancing, come try some dances adapted for online. No partner needed, but dances are taught for 1-2 people or more, and you can invite a friend to join and interact on video! Clear a space, put your camera where you can interact, and have some water handy. If you want to just chat, watch the dancing, or listen, it’s all good. Do si do and swing your partner!

Claire Takemori is passionate about sharing dance and music. She teaches and calls Americana folk dances (barn dances, square dances & hoedowns, family & community dances, contra dances, mixers, ceilidh parties, and English country dances) as well as kid-friendly dances, singing games, and couples’ waltzing.

Live music will be performed by Back Pocket, featuring Jess Newman on fiddle (and stomp percussion) and Will Wheeler on guitar (and foot percussion).  They are a HOT, NEW contra dance band from SF Bay Area. Message on Facebook to perform at your dance events: or
