Square Dance Lessons/Dancing

Modern Western Square Dance lessons/dancing will begin Tuesday, April 19, (weekly) from 7:30 to 9:30 PM at the 4H log building by the Community Center in Grand Marais. This is primarily to develop new dancers, although experienced dancers are also welcome.

MWSD has similarities to traditional square dance, but also substantial differences. Dancers don’t know what is coming, and you and the rest of your square react to what the caller is calling. As we learn calls, we will dance with them, so we will quickly be dancing. No fancy footwork is required and no special clothes.

MWSD provides low level aerobic exercise and very good brain exercise, since you have to quickly recognize a call and execute it with the other 7 members of your square. Lessons & Dancing will be each week, and if you miss a week, you can still come to future dances. The teaching format will keep you from getting behind.

At times you may have taken lessons to learn an activity, but after the lessons you find that you have no place to do it. The teacher, John Mattice, is also a caller and intends to have square dances as well as giving lessons, so there will be a place to dance and someone to call. Cost will be by donation at the door.

We’re on the Lookout – From Boats to Tools!

Do you have a slumbering wood canvas canoe in your garage? Has your collection of antique (or modern!) tools reached capacity and it’s time to let go of a few? Is that pile of cozy northern quilts just a little too tall?

Why not give your treasures a second life by donating them to the Boats to Tools Auction at North House Folk School? A classic element of the Wooden Boat Show, the Boats to Tools Auction shares the adventure of life in the North. Funds raised go toward bringing the international speakers, first-rate coursework, and regionally-revered special events to North House’s campus in Cook County every year.

North House is accepting many types of donations:

  • Boats of all types / Boating Supplies / Boating Books                
  • Woodworking Tools / Woodworking Supplies / Woodworking Books
  • Outdoor Gear / Camping Supplies / Outdoor Related Books
  • Traditional Craft
  • Gift Certificates

The Boats to Tools Auction takes place June 18 during the Wooden Boat Show. Hope to see you there!
