Third Friday Dance, September 19


The third Friday dance will sparkle with music from Skandia Kapell. Dance teaching starts at 7:30, when Judy Patterson and Larry Reinert will teach Mellparing. At 8:30, you can count on some great mixers, plus a wide variety of other kinds of dances. Join the fun!

—Martha Levenson

Judy Patterson and Larry Reinert will teach Mellparing, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 19. If you’ve exhausted your schottis “moves,” then this dance from Jämtland in Sweden may soon become your favorite. “Exhilarating” describes the smooth glide that partners’ distinct—and dissimilar—steps produce. Come dance with us!

Fifth Friday Dance, August 29

You may have heard rumors that the Fifth Friday Dance was moving…and it has! The August 29 Fifth Friday Dance will be held at none other than the Cedar Valley Grange! The evening kicks off with a Valdresspringar lesson from Jerry Walsh and Judy Patterson, starting at 7:30 p.m. This beautiful dance is a favorite of these two instructors, and you’ll see why! Skolkis, with special guest Peter Michaelsen, pulls out all its tricks at 8:30 p.m. for open dancing. Peter will also provide dancers with an opportunity to practice Valdresspringar in his hardingfele set, scheduled for the middle of the evening. Another set from Skolkis rounds out the evening. Bring a friend, bring a yummy something to share if you like, and enjoy an evening of terrific music and dance!
