New Website for Tapestry Coming Soon! PDF Print E-mail

We have partnered with local web designer Bob Schmitt of Laughing Waters Studio to help Martha Megarry, our Marketing and Technical Assistant, make a new site for Tapestry that will better meet your needs as dancers. Bob is a website designer, artist and a Longfellow resident who has helped many local Longfellow businesses with their website and logos. The biggest reason for this decision is we have heard from many dancers that they want to view the site easily on their phones. They also want more information on our calendar and want the site to look more attractive to new dancers. We are making a new site to meet these needs. Look for it later this summer!

Tapestry Folkdance Center

3748 Minnehaha Ave South, Minneapolis

Large Dance Studio

Cost: $5

Dance to live music:

Thursday September 18, 7:30pm

Black Dog Café, St. Paul


One: It's Fun! Two: It's Easy!!

Experience the magic of International Folkdance. Enjoy the camaraderie, spirit, and richness of dancing to folk music from around the world.

If you enjoy the dancing on Tuesday nights at the "Nine Nights of Music", join us for an 8-week beginner class where we will teach a sampler of fun and easy dances from countries ranging from the Middle East to Europe and from Asia to the Americas. At the end of the eight sessions, students will have the opportunity to use what we learned dancing to the live music of the award winning band Orkestar Bez Ime at the Black Dog Café in St. Paul.

Four teachers will share the teaching responsibilities in a fun and welcoming environment: Caren Grantz-Keljik, Terry McGibbon, Erin Walsh, and Gina Bonsignore. Most of the dances are performed in a line and do not require partners.

No previous dance experience is necessary and newcomers are free to come to any or all of the classes. 

For questions about the class, please contact Carole Wilson through the Tapestry office here
