The young, the old and even the elderly will dance up a storm at a Family Dance Night set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 3 at Oak Ridge Elementary School.
Everyone, of any age, is invited to join the fun.
It’s part of a dance seminar taught by artist-in-residence Terrence Smith, who hails from Duluth and who is a member of the North House Folk School.
Smith will teach students dance in a series of classes Feb. 2-4 at Oak Ridge, a series for all of the physical-education students in instructor Don Dockendorf’s classes. The school’s music department will also take part in the classes.
The Family Dance Night will give students, parents, siblings and relatives a chance to dance all at once on the gymnasium floor under Smith’s guidance. Smith has been a community-dancer instructor for several decades at schools and at weddings.
The Family Dance Night is free, thanks to the Parent Teacher Organization, which hosts a walkathon every fall to raise funds for special programming, including the artist-in-residence programs.
