Celebrate at the Basics Class dance party

Come dance and celebrate with Skandia’s wonderful Basics students on the first Wednesday in December, the 7th. We’re dancing to celebrate their amazing commitment and progress in 2016.

All are welcome, particularly past and current students. We’ll be doing a mix of waltz, schottis, snoa, Røros Pols, polka, hambo, and other dances taught this past year.

The Basics Party is at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, in Room #2 from 7:30 to 9 p.m., with a warm-up just before at 7:25 p.m. The cost is $7 for Skandia members and $10 for nonmembers.
