Both Lansing area contra and square dance committees have been busy lining up dance bands and callers for our upcoming fall and winter dance season. The Looking Glass opened the dance season on Sept. 21, while the Ten Pound Fiddle will host the next regular dance on November 2, with Rick Szumski (Ann Arbor) calling to the tunes of Mike, Myron, and Paul. (Be sure to also check out TPF's concert season, there are lots of folk and traditional bands and performers you will want to see.) Meanwhile -- here are some quick details on this weekend's Looking Glass Festival! Don't dawdle - we start dancing this Friday at 7:30pm! See more here!
