Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do I need a barn to have a barn dance?
No. You need a room large enough for the band, caller and dancers. A village hall, community centre, the back room of a pub or the O2 Arena would all be suitable venues.
Do I need to be able to dance to enjoy a barn dance?
No, the caller will guide everyone through the dances. If you can count and walk you can do a barn dance. Knowing left from right is an advantage, but not essential.
Do I need to provide a PA and caller?
No, we will bring a caller and a PA system. If you do wish to provide a PA and sound engineer, our PA spec is here: spec.
So you’re saying that you, the band, will provide the caller and PA system?
