NORTH CREEK - Tannery Pond Community Center will welcome the public to a free program Saturday, March 13. A community dance will be featured at 7 p.m at the community center.
Dan Duggan will be calling Square, Circle, Reels and Contra Dances. The event will be informative and no previous dance experience is necessary.
"We will all learn together," said Elise Widlund. "Square dance music is a great way to celebrate spring."
Duggan will also play the hammered dulcimer, accompanied by Peggy Lynn on concertina and guitar and Frank Orsini on the fiddle. He is acknowledged as one of the finest dulcimer players and composers in the country.
Dancers will see the fun and enthusiastic country dance instructor side of Duggan on this evening, according Widlund.
