Dancing in Lansing!
Hello! As many of our friends know, Julie Levy-Weston writes a short e-newsletter with current Lansing Contra Dance News, events and information, called Dancing in Lansing. Julie, or occasionally another board member, sends the e-newsletter to our list of interested members and friends on the Thursday evenings before the first and the third Saturday dances. You can join that list by sending us your email address, noted with your name and city. We will never sell or share your email address to anyone, Dancer's Honor. We'll archive the messages here, with the most recent at the top.
