'Barn Cats' perform for Nov. 10 dance

The Twin Cities old-time string band -- the Barn Cats -- will supply music for the River Falls Barn Dance series at the Academy Gym at the former Meyer Middle School on West Maple Street in River Falls 7-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10.

No experience is required, and first-timers are encouraged to attend. An experienced caller leads participants in dance steps. All ages are welcome, and partners optional. Family dances suitable for younger children are emphasized during the first half, with more challenging fun in the second half.

Other dances in the 2012-13 barn dance season are: Rush River Ramblers, Jan. 12; Barn Cats, Feb. 9; Grit Pickers, March 10; and Poor Benny, April 13. All dances are held on Saturday evenings.

The barn dances are a joint project of River Falls Community Arts Base and River Falls Parks and Recreation. Admission is $5 for adults and $2.50 for 12 and under. Inexpensive refreshments are available.
