Fall has been BUSY!!

Leave a comment

In previous years we have often viewed fall as our wind-down time, lessons only… but that has NOT been the case this year. This fall we have had several new performances (Goshen First Friday’s and Syracuse Harvest Festival- both of which had GREAT audiences) which has kept us hopping while also doing lessons. AND, several of our dancers just went to Fall Workshop last weekend where they get to learn new routines.

And if you’d like to see some video, be sure to check out our YouTube channel for both Fall Workshop video and recently uploaded video of performances throughout the summer!

And of course, don’t forget to Like us on Facebook!

Here are a couple of snapshots from that weekend.

Hard to believe it’s fall already…. that we’ve done a dozen shows this summer and we’re not done yet for the 2013 season.  And just as we finish the fall performance season we jump right into fall lessons and Clogfest workshop (where we sometimes pick up new routines for the following year!)

Do you have an event you need entertainment for- a family reunion, the homemakers club annual banquet, social gathering? Did you know we do private performances? Yep! How about your local festival or event- we’ve danced in North Webster, Elkhart, Nappannee, Goshen, Warsaw, South Bend, Middlebury, Millersburg, Shipshewana, Plymouth and even a trip over the border into Michigan. Just contact us.

Want to learn how to clog… or maybe you know how to clog and would like to join the group? Lessons start the first Thursday in October at 6:30 at Prairieview Missionary Church in Goshen. Let us know you’re interested so we can send you a reminder.

Hope to see you at one of our fall shows!
