Dance Series Announcement From Rob Fischman

Cure cabin fever this winter by attending a new dance series for families and friends ages 4-94! The 2010 Winter Family Dance series begins Sunday, January 10th, 3:00-5:00 pm at the Harmony School gymnasium (909 E 2nd). Bring your entire family for live music and fun social dancing with simple instruction.

This participatory program is comprised of dances in the traditional American mold. Simple, repetitive movements are easily learned, and families will quickly be dancing together in company with others. No experience is necessary, all dances will be taught. Also featuring talented local musicians on fiddle, accordion, piano, bass and banjo. Cost is $4/person or $15/family or household of 4 or more. For more information call Abby Ladin at 330-8731 or visit us on Facebook @ 2010 Winter Family Dance Series.

Family dance master caller DeLaura Padovan from Virginia will lead the first event. Her gentle joyful style engages children and adults at community dances, camps and gatherings nationwide. The band of local talent will include veteran dance musicians Sam Bartlett , Claudio Buchwald with Eric Schedler and special guest Steve Hickman.

Coordinator Abby Ladin introduces this monthly dance series as an activity which families can truly explore together. Ladin, who herself began dancing with her family as a young child, is a seasoned performer, dance teacher and musician, and can see Bloomington becoming the perfect place for the family dance experience.

The Winter Family Dance Series is made possible in part by the City of Bloomington, the Bloomington Community Arts Commission, the New Leaders, Good Leaders Fund of the Country Song & Dance Society, with additional support from the Bloomington Old Time Music & Dance Group.
