ATLANTIC MINE -- The Kivajat Dancers will host the Old Time Copper Country Dance from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday evening, April 29, at the Brownstone Hall in Atlantic Mine. Welcome spring by doing a waltz, polka or a bit of swing to the music of the Thimbleberry Band (and Friends).
The Brownstone Hall, with its recently remodeled stage and dance floor, is now a favorite dance venue, thanks to owners Susi and Tim Landers, who have spent months remodeling the building. Here dancers do a lively Finnish schottische during the Pasi Cats' Pikkujoulu (Little Christmas) dance on Dec. 12, 2010. On Friday, April 29, the Old Time Copper Country Dance will offer another opportunity for dancing -- this time to the Thimbleberry Band and Friends. (Keweenaw Now file photo)
Admission is just $8 at the door; anyone under 17 is free! There will be refreshments, a silent auction, and a performance at 7 p.m. by the Kivajat Children’s Finnish-American Folk Dance Group. This great event for all ages is a fundraiser for the dancers’ summer travels. Enjoy an evening of dance on a wonderful wooden dance floor in the newly renovated hall.
