November Second Chance Square Dance 2014!

Oh my...
Where has the time gone?  With a handful of festivals this year, including Hermit Music Festival, this blog has gotten a little cold with all of the happenings.  It's time to kick it up a notch.  How about this Friday night at the Linen Building with a good ole traditional Square Dance!

The Second Chance Square Dance returns at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21, at the Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St. in Downtown Boise’s Linen District. $7. All ages, full bar (I.D. required). Plenty of free, off-street parking is available at the Linen Building.

Modeled after the popular Hokum Hoedown and featuring many familiar faces, the Second Chance Square Dance is a modern take on the old-time hootenanny featuring the infectious swing of an authentic acoustic string band.

At each dance, a live band performs a diverse assortment of traditional folk-dance and string-band tunes while a cast of colorful callers directs the dances.

In addition to square dancing, the event features some good old-fashioned, swingin’, two-steppin’ western dancing. Young and old, couples and families, tattooed hipsters and ten-gallon cowboys ... the Second Chance Square Dance is a come-as-you-are, hand-clappin’ hootenanny for all.
