friends of Greenfield Dance

The Friends of Greenfield Dance supports traditional dance and music opportunities in Greenfield, MA.

Welcome to the dance community at the Guiding Star Grange. Here, we strive to accept each other’s differences while celebrating our mutual love of dance, music, community and friendship. We provide a platform of dialogue and support for all dance organizers in Greenfield and we support opportunities to strength our dance community through workshops and dances. Learn more about us.

Come to a dance! Dances at the Guiding Star Grange in Greenfield are run by eight different dance organizers who offer a variety of contra dances each month, on Friday and Saturday evenings. Occasional workshops are offered through the year, and special dances are held on selected Sundays.

Complete dance information is available by checking the Guiding Star Grange Calendar of Events. An overview of all monthly dances in Greenfield is also available for download (PDF).

Due to the concerns of our community that include immunocompromised individuals, intergenerational folks, and at-risk workers, the Friends of Greenfield Dance reserve the right at any given time to set COVID policies for FGD events (including prom, fall frolic, or family dances but not regular Friday or Saturday series dances) based on but not limited to: community exposure, wastewater numbers indicating the number of COVID cases in Greenfield, and environmental variables.
