Folklore Village Healthy Hoedowns are fun-filled barn dance evenings of traditional American dances, including old-time squares, New England contras and Appalachian, Southern and Midwestern big circles. No experience or special costume required. Families and beginners are always welcome!

Upland Hills Health is primary sponsor of the Healthy Hoedown series and encourages us all to connect the thread between healthy eating and a social, community-building form of exercise!
