Updated: Dance Zone to host contra dances, family dance lessons, more in Marquette

MARQUETTE -- The Dance Zone in Marquette will host several dance events in the next two weeks -- including live music.

Two upcoming contra dances -- a lot of fun for the whole family -- will be held on the next two Fridays:

This Friday, Sept. 23 -- Tamarack from Iron River will be playing from 7:30 p.m. -10 p.m. The Beaumier Center on campus will be co-hosting this dance at the Dance Zone. $5; $1 for full-time (FT) students.

Next Friday, Sept. 30 -- All Strings Considered will be back to start the monthly contra and old time square dances from 7:30 p.m. - 10 p.m. at the Dance Zone. $5; $2 for FT students.

On Saturday, Sept. 24, Black Pearl will be back to play a variety of dance music at the Dance Zone from 7 p.m.-11 p.m. $8 per person; $2 for FT students.

A family square dance class is now being held on Fridays from 6:15 p.m. - 7:20 p.m. This is a great way to learn an ages-old American tradition with your kids or grandkids. Lessons are $5 per family.

"The kids that are doing the class right now are terrific and it's loads of fun," says Marge Sklar, Dance Zone owner.

Looking ahead: A Little Bit of Outlaw will be back to play for dancing from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8.

All events are at Dance Zone, 1113 Lincoln Avenue, Marquette.
