Dance Weekend

The Lawrence Barn Dance Association’s annual dance weekend will look a little different this year. Rather than the historical Pilgrims Progression in November, we welcome everyone to the Yuletide Frolic on December 9th and 10th. Save the date and stay tuned for additional details!

Yuletide Frolic

Join us for a weekend of dancing called by Wendy Graham! Wendy is dynamic and extremely energetic with a passion for dance that clearly shines through.  An evening of dancing with Wendy Graham is an evening well spent! Additionally Wendy will be teaching two caller’s workshops and we will have two dancers workshops on Saturday.

Jambaroque is the headliner for Friday evening’s dance at the Cider Gallery which is a lovely space in the Lawrence Cultural District near downtown. Gerald Trimble, viola de gamba innovator and Kansas City native, is the primary exponent of a new style of playing an ancient instrument. His visionary and virtuosic playing combines Celtic, Eastern and Early Music influences with modern techniques and improvisational skills that span several centuries- from Baroque to jazz- seamlessly uniting the entire continuum. Five additional members of Jambaroque play various other old world and modern instruments. For a little additional fun, we are encouraging participants to dress in period outfits if you choose.

Saturday evening will include a dance with Kaw Creek! Alice Boyle and Robert Rosenberg are a duo who play new and traditional songs and tunes on fiddle and guitar.

Known for its hospitality and fun, our dance weekends are always an Unmistakably Lawrence event!
