The Looking Glass Music & Arts Association Invites You!

The Looking Glass Contra & Square Dance Spring Celebration was a blast!

Thank you to Carol Ormond and The Johns!

Carol Ormond

The Looking Glass Music & Arts Association Dance Committee welcomed Carol Ormond and The Johns for a special 2-day dance event in downtown Lansing on April 20 & 21.  Dancers enjoyed terrific music and great dancing.  Experienced dancers even got to enjoy a Saturday afternoon advanced session with challenging contras, squares, and some lovely older "Chestnuts", dances not called as often as in times past. Thank you to everyone who helped make the weekend such fun!  

The Looking Glass has organized monthly contra and square dances, workshops, and other traditional music and arts activities for close to 40 years. We're a volunteer non-profit family-friendly organization, and all are welcome. Please join us! Click to learn more, and join us on the dance floor soon!
