I'm taking the summer months off from teaching the line dance class at the Moose. I get very busy with the Blueberry Farm and people travel for vacations. Hope to start back in September.

I would like to do a Saturday night dance party at the Moose in July if I can get enough participation to make it work for the Moose Lodge. Please email me to let me know if you would support a dance night. I will DJ and play both line dance and couples dance music. I can start the evening with a short dance lesson. Cost would only be $10 per person and the upstairs bar would be open.
