Fern Bradley

Fern Bradley

Calling Contras, Squares,
and Community Dances for all Ages

Fern Bradley has become a regional favorite dance caller since moving to the Hudson Valley area in 2005. New dancers and experienced dancers alike appreciate her relaxed teaching style, her warm voice, and her knack for choosing dances that are just the right fit for the mix of dancers on the floor. Fern loves to introduce people to contra dancing, and she also enjoys calling community and family dances, blending a variety of folk traditions at events designed for people of all ages.

Fern has been part of the mid-Atlantic and New England dance scene for more than 25 years, since she first learned to contra dance in Princeton and Lambertville, New Jersey. Fern began calling contra dances in 2000 while living in eastern Pennsylvania and has since expanded her calling repertoire to include square dances and community dancing. She is one of the organizers of the Hubbard Hall Contra Dance in Cambridge, New York, and the editor of the Dance Flurry News.

When Fern takes off her dancing shoes, she devotes much of her time to editing and writing books, primarily about organic gardening and farming. She is the author of Rodale’s Vegetable Garden Problem Solver.
