2019 Mountain Folk Festival Dances

2019 dances are being chosen. Our tradition is to include American square and contra dances, mixers, a play party game, English country dances, and a Danish folk dance. Let us know if you have favorites you would like included!

We always include

  • Gisburn Processional
  • Sellenger’s Round
  • May Day Carol

Last year we voted on our favorite dance from last year to include again in the 2019 festival, and the winner is… Female Sailor (longways English Country Dance)!
