I enjoy a wide variety of dancing : contras and squares, english, scandinavian and balkan. I also call contra and traditional square dances.

In the Lansing area we have contra and square dances on the first and third Saturdays of each Month from September through June usually at the Central United Methodist Church, 215 N. Capitol Ave. Lansing.

For information on dances see the dance calendar or call: The Ten Pound Fiddle Hot Line 517-337-7744 and the Michigan Dance Hotline 734-332-9024.
