About the Dances

The Folk Arts Center is pleased to support the monthly Barn Dance series at the Parish Center for the Arts (PCA) in Westford, MA - a dance that began in the Fall of 2000 with the band Oh CONTRAire! The definition of a Barn Dance is, according to Oxford Languages, “an informal social gathering for square dancing, originally held in a barn”. The PCA was built in 1829, and, while a historic place full of charm, it was never a barn! Nevertheless, the Barn Dance series fits in well with the historic and family-friendly setting!

Upcoming Schedule


  • November: 26 (Tony Parkes, Oh CONTRAire)


  • February: 25 (Lisa Greenleaf)

Please help protect the hall’s wooden floor by changing to clean, soft-soled shoes before dancing. For the comfort and well-being of all our dancers, especially those with allergies or asthma, please do not wear perfume or fragranced personal products at our dances. Thank you!
