When is a Barn Dance not a Barn Dance? When it’s a Bowery Dance! Music will be provided by Madison’s own Scandinavian American Old-Time Dance Music Ensemble, a mix of community members, UW–Madison students, faculty, and staff, and they’ll be joined by UW–Madison Spring 2022 Musician-in-Residence Beth Hoven Rotto and her husband Jon Rotto, coming from Decorah, Iowa. Come dance waltzes, polkas, schottisches, and other old time dances on campus at Allen Centennial Garden.
This event is sponsored by Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures, the Sustaining Scandinavian Folk Arts in the Upper Midwest project, and the Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic+.
