Dances will continue to run on the third Saturday of the month (except July and August), 8 to 11 p.m., now at NV Dance Productions, 134 Hall St., Unit 2. As always, dances are walked through before the music starts and beginners, singles and families are welcome. This is a smoke- and alcohol-free activity. The Saturday dance features caller Byron Ricker with music from Jeff Kaufman, Alex Cumming, Rick Kaufman and Stephen Thomforde playing fiddle, mandolin, piano, pipes and possibly other instruments. The Concord contra dance series is starting its 31st year. Visit concordnhcontra.wordpress.com for more information. Cost is $9 for adults, $5 ages 15 to 25, free under age 15.
