Those of you in southern New Hampshire might want to check out listings in northern Massachusetts because it's right next door. Those elsewhere in the state might want to check out neighboring Maine or Vermont.
Editor's Note: I don't get up to New Hampshire much so I don't have much personal experience with these dance venues. I depend on the kindness of local dancers to keep me informed of local activity. If you find that some of this information needs to be updated or if you would like to make an addition to this webpage, please write to me at email@example.com.
If you teach classes, hold workshops, play in a band, or hold dances, please read the list of frequently asked questions before you ask to have your information listed here.
