The mission of Belfast Flying Shoes is to bolster the spirited dance community in Midcoast Maine. We do this in part by deliberately weaving three strands into the fabric of a monthly series: The Community Dance, the Social Break, and the Contra Dance.

The Community Dance – Fun and simple dances, such as those presented at weddings or schools. Calling by Chrissy Fowler. Music by the All-Comers Band, led by a core ensemble and open to all musicians. New dancers, experienced dancers, families, and musicians all collaborate to create the event.

The Social Break – A sociable half-hour between the Community and Contra dances, with emphasis on strengthening community connections through shared conversation.

The Contra Dance – Zesty dances and tunes in a program of contras and squares presented by a variety of talented callers and musicians, especially touring performers. Expectations for this particular thread are colored by committee members’ collective experiences in other exciting dance communities.
