East Central Regional Library in partnership with the Pine County Historical Society in Askov welcome people of all generations and dance levels to check out a series of folk dance instruction and live performance at the Pine County Historical Society in Askov.
On Saturday, April 1 at 1 p.m. join us for the second event in the series as an award-winning group from Minneapolis called Finn Hall entertains and educates us. These musicians recreate the feel and sounds of the historic Finnish-American dance halls for local dancers offering waltz, polka, schottische, mazurka, tango, humppa and other dances.
The folk dance series will continue with the Norwegian sounds of De glada on Saturday, May 6 at 1 p.m., followed by an Octoberfest event later in the fall.
No registration is necessary for the event, which are free and open to the public. The dance workshops are geared for ages 14 and up, and singles and couples are welcome. This project was funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
