Dear dancers, we are very pleased to announce that Harvest Moon Folk Society will resume contra-dancing starting July 17, 2021, at River Falls Lodge. Additionally, we plan to have first and third Saturday dances at RFL starting in August. Private contra dances this past year have been successfully charging $15, but we decided to raise the RFL fee from $8 to only $10. Also be aware that we have indefinite plans for resuming dancing at Landmark Hall. Please monitor this site and social media for updates. We hope to see you all dancing again starting July 17th.
We hold Contra Dances in the Upstate of South Carolina. Our Saturday dances are held first and third Saturdays at the River Falls Lodge which is located at 150 River Falls Lodge Road, Marietta, South Carolina 29661.
In the meantime, if you would like to make a donation to help keep our dances afloat or to help with upgrades to our aging sound equipment, you can write a check to Harvest Moon Folk Society, and send it to PO Box 342, Seneca, SC 29679 or place it or a cash donation in our donation jar that can be found upon entry at our River Falls dances.
Please do not park, even part way, on the highway or the circle (River Falls Road or River Falls Lodge Road) including the bridge. Instead park completely on the grass. We want to make the roads clear for emergency vehicles to be able to easily get through. We also do not want to have any problems with the law. If possible, car pool to save on parking space. Thank you for your attention on this matter.
Admission to regular dances: Ages 14 and above– $10, under 14 free if accompanied and supervised by a paying individual over the age of 15. No Coins Please!
Are you a beginner? We strongly encourage you to attend our FREE beginner classes before every dance. Class starts at 7:30 – learn new steps, or just refresh what you know!
CAMPING is available on the grounds for $5 per person. Showers are available.
Check out our potluck dinner! We will periodically host potlucks before or after special events such as the Monster Mash dance or board meetings, but will announce them ahead of time, so stay posted and/or sign up to receive notification through the Yahoo Groups email updates.
Consider serving a term (or two) on our board. Harvest Moon Folk Society is always looking for a few good folks who would help give back to the contra dancing community. More information from any board member, or at the entry desk at any RFL dance. The board application form is here.
