Frog Hammer

1/26/2020 at 6:00 PM


Join us for an hour of easy, fun social dancing to the high-energy sound of Frog Hammer, with a half hour of instruction preceding the dance. In keeping with the special event highlighting American music and dance heritage, the evening will feature a number of classic American social dances—which George Washington and his friends undoubtedly enjoyed—but with a modern sound. Caroline Barnes is a seasoned caller especially skilled at making even the most inexperienced beginner comfortable on the dance floor.

Presented in collaboration with the Mount Vernon Ladies Association.
