Get your Feet Retreat Dance Weekend feet in shape for dancing before that annual extraordinary dance weekend which comes up the following weekend, Sept 15-16! Come to the Guilford Grange in Greensboro on this Saturday, September 9 when we welcome The Ones Improper, which is a 5 to 7 piece band that blends their multiple instruments into an exciting varying soundscape that will please the ear as well as the feet!
The Ones Improper, made up of musical artists from many backgrounds including recording, touring, musical theater, worship, jazz band and others, has been playing at contra dances, English country dances, banquets, and farmer’s market and other events together for several years now.
