Dancing in the Upper Peninsula
(of Michigan)
The U.P. Dance Calendar


Do something good for yourself -- Dance to live music!

     Do you know of a dance that isn't on the U.P. Dance Calendar? Are you organizing a dance? Are you a musician/band playing for dances? Email the details of your dance to sue@manytracks.com and I'll be happy to post it below.  No dances in your area? Make one happen! Help keep the dancers and dance musicians active and happy. Cheers, Sue.
