Kentucky Center for Traditional Music hosts square dance Oct. 8

The Kentucky Center for Traditional Music (KCTM) will host a community square dance, Thursday, Oct. 8, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Rowan County Arts Center at 205 East Main Street.  

Square dancing is family and beginner-friendly. The MSU Old Time Ensemble and friends will be performing. Sarah Kate Morgan, a senior traditional music major from Sharp’s Chapel, Tennessee, and  Larah Helayne, a high school student from Mt. Sterling enrolled in traditional music classes, will be co-calling the evening.  

“Square dancing is all about building community through a uniquely Appalachian tradition,” Morgan said. “Our dances are always family-friendly and inclusive to students as well as community members of all ages.”  

Admission is $3 for the general public, free to all students. Participants are asked to arrive promptly at seven so they can learn the dance moves properly. Those attending the dance are encouraged to bring a snack to share.
