Springing into step at the old-time dance
It didn’t matter if you knew the waltz from the polka. What mattered was your enthusiasm and your energy. The Polish Hall in Coleman was packed on Saturday, April 21 for thesecond annual Dare to be Square Old-Time Dance, with over 80 people in attendance. Award-winning fiddlers Gordon Stobbe (caller and emcee) and JJ Guy and pianist Marlee Heesing had the entire hall up and dancing to upbeat fiddle tunes, melodic folk harmonies and classic waltz melodies.
