May’s International Folkdance Program

This month, International Folkdance Fridays will feature dances that can be performed to the music of regional bands that you may find performing at local parties, like the Milwaukee band performing at Tapestry this fall – Orkestar Sloboda. The dances will hail primarily from Serbia and the Balkan countries, but as always, the teacher is responsive to requests from the dancers at hand. Instructor Dan Garvin is an accomplished and experienced International dance teacher with decades of experience. Whether you are new to folkdance or a regular at Tapestry, come and enjoy the party!

Got a Love for All Things Folk?

On Friday, May 13 (8 to 10:30 pm) and Saturday, May 14 (7 to 10:30 pm), you’ll find an eclectic collection of folk-related items, textiles and clothing for sale. Many thanks to Laura Schneck, whose work hosting the Bizarre Bazaar benefits Tapestry folkdance programs.
