Old-Time Square Dance
The Old-Time Square Dance will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2019 in the Denton Civic Center on W. Salisbury St. in Denton. The dance features regional old-time and bluegrass bands, with an experienced caller. There are opportunities for other dances such as waltzes, two-steps, flat footing, and clogging, in addition to the called dances. Those who just want to listen to the music are always welcome. Providing music for the November dance will be local bluegrass band The Oak Tree Boys with dances called by Ken Beck.
Performing for the Oak Tree Boys this month will be Matthew Nance, Banjo; Scott Arnold, Fiddle; and Tim Maines, Guitar. Noted for their timing and hard driving sound, the band has provided music for church services, homecomings, family gatherings, socials, and dances. They have been the house band for the Old Time Square Dance since its beginning in 1996.    
The dance is from 7:00 to 10:00 PM. Adult admission is $5.00, and children aged 12 and under are admitted free of charge. In order to protect the dance floor and provide good listening for all, dancers are asked not to wear taps on their shoes. Door prizes will be given provided by Denton Florist and refreshments are available. This is a family-oriented event and no alcohol is permitted. For more information call 336-472-2802 or view the website at \\
The Old-Time Square Dance is sponsored in part by Arts United of Davidson County and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural resources, with funding from the State of North Carolina and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
