Our monthly dances run from 8-11 PM every third Friday from September through June, except as noted in our flyer (and here). There is a 15 minute introduction to Contra Dancing at 7:45pm before our 3rd Friday Dances.

The address for our monthly dance is 7 Harrington Road, Lexington, MA 02420. It's at the southwest corner of the Green. There's a parking lot in back, via the driveway on the left (south) side of the church. The rear door, by the parking lot, is the one to use, and is usually open by 7:30. Take the stairs or the elevator to the 2nd floor.
