Monday dance lessons
Happening This Week – Feb. 19, 2017
Hello again dance friends,
It’s time to put on your dance shoes and come join us for another evening of fun.
This week Dave Charlebois will share his knowledge of Bingsjo polska, another terrific turning dance from Sweden. Dave is very good at explaining and demonstrating everything you need to know about this dance. This may well become one of your favorites if it’s not already. Come early for a good seat.
But wait! There is more in store for us this week. Our terrific in-house musician, Kim Majors, has put together an official trio and named it “Vanta Bara.” This newly formed group has volunteered to play a set of tunes for our dance on Monday. This promises to be good. Our music scene gets better all the time, thanks to Kim.
I will be the DeeJay this week, playing tunes during the lesson and in between the live sets. I’m looking forward to a fine evening of music and dance!
Lessons begin at 7:30, and doors are open at 7 pm.
Thank You Musicians!
A big thanks to the musicians who play a few tunes for us almost every Monday! It really livens things up.
Why? These days our membership fees are just almost enough to meet our expenses. We didn't want to raise them this year, so we're putting a donation jar on the entry table and hoping for the best! If you can help, thank you!
Monday dances September through May are from 7-10 pm. These dances include a free lesson from 7:30 to 8:30. Summer Monday dances start at 7:30 and do not include lessons. Admission is $5 per person or yearly membership is $60 (pro-rated for folks who start later in the year) — a great deal! We dance at Nordia House, 8800 SW Oleson Rd, Portland. Click here for map.
