All dances TAUGHT. No experience necessary. No one is required to dance. It is a SOCIAL event. Predominantly simple and traditional southern figures. No dress code or partner needed. Anyone can dance with ANYONE regardless of gender.

Wanna JAM? Harry Bickel's old time music jam is in the bar. Bring your instrument to participate in the all level jam! No cover if you're just going to jam, but please enter through Danny Mac's main door.


The Monks (Bloomington, IN) are a raging, twin fiddle driven, Old Time band following in the footsteps of the Skillet Lickers. Fiddling together for over 25 yeras, Frank Hall and Claudio Buchwald have mastered a perfect blend of melodic sweetness and rhythmic grit. Sam Bartlett and Abby Ladin anchor The Monks on guitar and bass fiddle. The Monks perform sweet, sad southern songs, a cappella ballads, rowdy dance tunes and waltzes and polkas from orquestas de cuerdas. (http://my.voyager.net/~bonhanno/monks.htm)

Tamara Loewenthal has been performing and teaching various styles of American and Celtic step dance for over 20 years. Growing up in the Appalachian foothills of southwestern Pennsylvania, Tamara fell in love with clogging as a young adult and has been flatfooting ever since. She regularly calls square and contra dances for groups around the country and teaches step dance classes in Bloomington, and workshops wherever she goes. (http://www.fiddlenfeet.com/bio/353)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
