John McIntire led circle dances on the green in the Camden Amphitheatre as part of the Moving Explorations in Community (ME in Community) event.
John says: "I believe in participatory dancing. Whether it is a small community gathering at a Grange hall or a packed gym at a dance festival, I strive to make dancing inviting and accessible to all. I had the good fortune to be mentored by several well known New England Contra dance callers and it was from them that I learned to be flexible in my approach and observant in teaching. I view dancing as a social event where the primary goal is to interact both physically and verbally with all who are present. I think that dancing and food are our two best tools for building supportive communities.
