Wayne Center for the Arts announced a selection of dance and music coming to WCA on select weekend dates this summer. Provided and performed by local musicians, these events are welcome to age 8 and older with a $5 donation at the door.

—Sunday, June 26, English country dance from 4-6 p.m., music by Fourpence.

—Saturday, July 23, contra dance from 7-9 p.m., music by Marcus Ladrach and Teresa White.

—Sunday, Aug. 7, English country dance from 4-6 p.m., music by Fourpence.

—Saturday, Aug. 13, contra dance from 7-9 p.m., music by Marcus Ladrach and Teresa White.

No experience is necessary. All dances are taught and called by Susan English. The dances are done in sets of couples in longways, circle or square formation. It is customary to change partners and dance with everybody in the hall.

While English country dance is done with a quiet energy, contra dance, its American cousin, involves more aerobic turning and swinging.

Musicians will include current and past staff of Wayne Center for the Arts — Mike Deyo on violin, Stephanie Musselman on keyboard and bodhran, and Teresa White on banjo and pennywhistle — along with local artists Cid Cayhoe on accordion, banjo and pennywhistle; Linda Hershberger-Kirk on cello; and Marcus Ladrach on fiddle. English country dance music 1600 to present is arranged by Deyo.

Dancers should bring a personal water bottle for hydration, with mask optional. A donation of $5 will be received at the door. Wayne Center for the Arts is located at 237 S. Walnut St., Wooster. Park and enter at the back of the building.
