Upcoming Events & Schedule
# Ongoing – Lawrence Barn Dance Association’s contra dance held on the third Saturday of every month. During the halftime we are usually present to play a couple of schottis and hambo dances. See the LBDA website for the contra dance calendar.
#April 28th: On April 28 we are presenting, ScandiNatives,
The event will include a Friday evening concert, a Scandinavian dance workshop on Saturday afternoon and an opportunity to practice the dances at a dance party that evening and to enjoy another grand Scandinavian social event. Dancing is not a requirement at this event and Scandinavian dancing experience is not needed for participation in the evening party.The concert: Traditional dance tunes, whirling waltzes, happy polkas, groovy jigs, fiery reels and breathless hopsas plus the exotic Sønderhoning dance tunes from the Island of Fanø, Denmark are simply a brief glance into the complexities
and multi-layered performances of the fiddling couple Jamie Fox and Kristian Bugge. To accompany the music they tell the stories of the traditions they both grew up in.
