You might want to save the last dance

The old-time string band Poor Benny returns to the River Falls Saturday barn dance series in the gym of the River Falls Academy at 439 W. Maple Street from 7-9 p.m. Saturday, April 19.

The group features UW-River Falls English professor David Furniss on guitar, and other players from the Wisconsin-Minnesota border area. Poor Benny brings lively musical accompaniment to line and circle dances, reels, waltzes, and square dances.

A dance caller will be on hand to teach the steps to new and more seasoned dancers alike. All ages are welcome, singles, couples, and families. Family dances suitable for children are featured during the first half, with more advanced dances in the second half.
