The Great North Woods Center for the Arts is bringing back this great decade of music and dance, and of course many more of these favorites, on Saturday, Nov. 4, starting at 7 p.m., at the Center in Columbia. It’s part of the continuing Decades Dance Party series which are fundraisers for the Center.
“We’ll have concessions selling our usual assortment of soft drinks, water and snacks,” said Charlie Jordan, President of the GNWCA. “The dancers will be inside the larger theater room.” Everyone is encouraged to dress in their 1970s threads and come in for an autumn night of dance and music.
“We’re excited to host this fun night of music from the era raging from classic rock to disco,” said Jordan. “We’ll be decorated throughout the building with funky lighting, and dancers will have plenty of room to dance the night away. If you want to just come and listen, that’s fine too. There will be plenty of comfortable seating.”
Jordan said that many people have asked for more of the decades dance parties, coming off the successful nights of the ’80s and ’60s dances. Said Jordan, “It’s your chance to dance the tunes you grew up with.”
Admission is $15 per person, and all proceeds will go to the GNWCA, which is a multi-arts center on the former Shrine of Our Lady of Grace property in Columbia.
