Dance – Silent Auction No Dance Experience Necesary
The ever-popular Old Time Dance to benefit the Great River Folk Festival will be held Saturday evening, February 11 at the Concordia Ballroom, 1129 La Crosse Street in La Crosse. Come a little early to check out the silent auction, featuring beautiful hand crafted items, local wines, and many more goods and services. From 7:00-10:00, renowned area caller Tim Jenkins will teach and call traditional American dances: squares, contras, reels, and more. All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary.
This barn dance-style celebration has gained a large and diverse audience and a reputation for banishing cabin fever. Popular local string band Grand Picnic will play for the dance. Suggested donation is $10 for adults; students $8, kids $5.
