Family Dance for All

Claire Takemori
Family Room / 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Bring your family or a stuffed animal, let’s do si do. We will clap, stamp, and sing a song. Appropriate for family members of all ages.

I am passionate about sharing dance and music! I teach and call fun, Americana folk (barn dances, square dances and hoedowns, family and  community dances, contra dances, mixers, ceilidh parties, and English country dances) as well as kid-friendly dances, singing games, and couples’ waltzing. I’m learning to play fiddle, accordion and foot percussion, while I already play some ukulele, piano, and flute.
