Sudbury Militia
Regimental Ball

This is the second evening of contra dancing at the Wayside Inn that the Sudbury Companies of Militia and Minute hold each year. It occurs soon after the Sudbury Companies’ March to the North Bridge in Concord.

On April 22, 2011, the main dining room at the Wayside Inn was the setting for another great evening of contra dancing and socializing.

Our first contra dance of the year, the Twelfth Night Ball, was held on January 14, 2011. Check out slides of a past Twelfth Night Ball and Grand Ball at the Red Horse Tavern.

The dances are "called" and start off simple, becoming a little more complicated and elegant as the evening and drink flow. The public is welcome, and, no, you do not need colonial attire or a partner to participate.

Now that both of our balls have taken place, you'll have to wait until 2012 for a chance to contra dance in the Wayside Inn.
