We have been known to dance most any time, before breakfast or 'neath the moon. It is in our soul. We listen to our inner rhythm. Just ask our families!
Jeannine Sladick, Patricia Hoekje, and Daniel Gorno have been dancing for 60 years. Yes, together they have worn the soles off many shoes. They worked together years ago, went off and pursued their own interests, which includes 3 spouses, 10 kids, and 45 pairs of dance shoes. They were brought back together to dance a few years ago and are having too much fun to keep it to themselves. They will be performing and teaching traditional dances from England, Ireland, French Canada and the United States.
We are listed with the Michigan Arts and Humanities Touring Arts Program. If you are interested in hiring us for school programs, workshops and/or a concert, you can apply for a grant to help fund your event through this program.
