The Looking Glass Music & Arts Association Invites You!

Save the Date: Oct 6-8, 2017!

The Looking Glass Festival Committee warmly welcomes Bev Bernbaum and Will Mentor calling their fabulous dances to the hot music of Pete's Posse and The Contrarians!  Make your plans and watch this space!  Woo hoo!!

What's Happening? A Picnic!

5pm Sat May 20, 2017  We'll fire up the grill for burgers and doggies at Patriarch Park in East Lansing that evening.  There will be music, good food, great friends, and maybe even a dance will break out!  (We were unable to book our usual location that night.)  Looking Glass will provide hot dogs, veggie burgers, buns and condiments.   Please bring a picnic food to share, and instruments to play.  We have the entire pavillion at Partriarch Park (a.k.a. Alton Park) in East Lansing. The park is at Alton Street at Saginaw, about a half mile east of the Abbot/Saginaw intersection.   Members of the Pretty Shaky String band will be playing tunes - and some spontaneous dancing just may happen.  Come join this fun outdoor party!

The Looking Glass has organized monthly contra and square dances, workshops, and other traditional music and arts activities for over 30 years. We're a volunteer non-profit family-friendly organization, and all are welcome. Dancing is fun, good exercise, and movement to live music with grinning happy people is good for you! You don't need to bring a partner. There's a new dancer lesson a half hour before almost every dance, so you don't have to know anything about Contra. Click to learn more, and join us on the dance floor soon!

Here's a small taste of the fun we had at the Looking Glass Festival

Over the weekend of September 30 - October 3, 2016, dancers from as far away as Boston and Kentucky joined us here in Lansing! Many thanks to John Newsome for the video!

See below? That's us having a blast!
