First Friday Dance, October 3

The evening opens at 7:30 p.m, with Don Meyers and Kathi Ploeger teaching Telespringar. Don’t miss this chance to brush up your moves, or learn some of the basics if you haven’t danced this entrancing dance. The music starts at 8:30, with the great trio Sprida Ut bringing us the sounds of the nykelharpa and guitar—plenty of great tunes to keep you happy. There will be a break set with telespringar
music, because you will want to practice what you were taught. The evening closes with the full sound of Hale Bill and the Bopps, with special guests David Lamb and Bob Hamilton. Don’t miss it!

Third Friday Dance, October 17

It’s the night before the Skandia Ball—a great opportunity to warm up your dancing skills. Teaching starts at 7:30 p.m. with Larry Reinert and Elaine Mathies covering the lovely and elegant Bingsjöpolska. This is a great dance to learn, because once you know it, you can adapt it to many other polska dances quite easily. The live music comes on at 8:30 p.m., with the highly educated and very talented duo Paradocs: Ellen Wijsman and Nancy Morrison. They will get you moving ‘round the floor as if you have a Ph.D. in dancing. The evening finishes with the great duo North and
South—Martha Levenson and Leslie Foley. This will be good indeed; two of the top fiddlers in the Puget Sound playing for your enjoyment. Listen for some great harmonies to go with the soulful tunes!
