I have lived in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire throughout the time I’ve been dancing. I’m not a big traveller, but I’ve danced in many places in New Hampshire and Maine, and in the remaining New England states and in upstate New York. Over the years I’ve written articles and stories about dancing in many of those places, and I’d like to present some of them in this section.
Many of the stories and articles here are originally from the Seacoast Country Dance Newsletter.
