Summer dates (no band) depend on availability of dancers.
All Strings Considered – Old Time Stringband Music
All Strings Considered has a primary focus on traditional old-time instrumental and vocal music of the Appalachian region with a bit of Celtic and Scandinavian tossed into the mix from time to time. The group’s sound is a blend of Jamie Kitchel on fiddle, Rochelle Schuster on hammered dulcimer, Phil Watts on guitar, Annette Watts on autoharp, and Maggie Morgan on bass. All Strings Considered will get your feet tapping to those great traditional fiddle tunes then soothe your day with a gentle waltz or tell a story with an Appalachian song.
COMMUNITY DANCE CLASS. Parents, grandparents, kids, grandkids, children of all ages - learn a skill that has been enjoyed by generations. Will begin again in the summer session. TO RESUME IN THE FALL.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY; fun for all ages
What is the community dance program?
The Community Dance Program is an easy-access, limited basics program that demands little commitment on the part of the dancers, but at the same time provides an almost unlimited scope of variety, friendship, and fun.
Unfortunately, this type of program is not widely available. The NMU International Dancers and Dance Zone will offer the community dance program this fall and winter.
Men, women and children who would like to be involved in square dancing on a limited time schedule are invited to participate in this program.
The Community Dance Program (CDP) is a grass-roots concept of the activity – the basic form of square dancing that Americans have enjoyed for years. While there is no limit to the variety involved, it is the form of variety that can be achieved with a limited amount of class time and then enjoyed for a life-time.
The 24 basic steps in the community dance program can be learned in six two-hour lessons, so that the dancers can get onto the dance floor quickly. These steps will be learned via traditional square, contra, couple, mixer and individual line dances.
Don’t miss our Contra Dance with a Live Band!! All Strings Considered playing Oct. 1, Nov. 5, and Dec. 3, 6:30-9 PM.
What will you learn?
Note: Contra dances typically use the basic square dance calls.
