First Friday Dance, August 5

Most of the polskor danced at Skandia are of the smooth variety. So, what do we do when the polska has a more of a bounce? The turning step will be familiar but have a very different feel in this dance from Järvsö in Hälsingland. In the class at 7:30, join Don Meyers and Kathi Ploeger and enjoy the bounce in your step. Your DJ for the evening will be Bob Hamilton, fresh back from Sweden with some new CDs; you will have great dancing music by some of the finest artists in Scandinavia.

—Bob Hamilton

Third Friday Dance, August 19

At 7:30, Jerry Walsh and Judy Patterson will share a Swedish dance or two from the Föllinge dance camp they attended in July. Terrific music is a given for dances from this area. At 8:30, Skandia Kapell brings its full, textured sound to the Grange for your dancing enjoyment. Don’t miss this opportunity to get warmed up for the fall dancing season!

—Bob Hamilton
