Schumacher Farm Park

Where Dane County's Rural Heritage Comes Alive.

Line Dance Lessons

Stop out at Schumacher Farm Park and learn to line dance! Whether you are brand new, want to learn some new dances, or just want to move and dance to old favorites, all are welcome.

Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings in August, September, and October (see dates below). New dances will be taught each week, with a review of the prior week's dances. Dancers should wear comfortable shoes or boots. Lessons will take place in the shade on the blacktop parking lot of the Center for Rural History, with dancers maintaining social distancing. Class size is limited to 20. 

Instructor: Nancy Vidlak learned her first line dance 25 years ago. She and her husband dance every chance they get to country, swing and ballroom tunes. They love the dance community in Dane County and, before COVID-19 restrictions, would dance 3-4 nights a week!
