Dance & Music Workshop

Clarence and Bonita Ley of Rapid City, South Dakota, will be leading a Dance and Music Workshop on Wednsday afternoon (7/30) from 1:00-2:30 during the International Convention of Germans from Russia in Casper, Wyoming, next week. The week-long gathering opens Monday, July 28th at the Parkway Plaza Hotel and Convention Center and will run through August 3rd.

Music and dancing is an important part of any culture, and that's certainly true for Unser Leute! This session will be an opportunity to absorb another fascinating aspect of German-Russian heritage. The workshop will take place in the Tiffany Room of the Parkway. Please note that this room is not fully ADA-compatible for those who may need assistance.

Nearly a thousand attendees are expected for this joint convention of the Germans from Russia Heritage Society (GRHS) and the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia (AHSGR). Lincoln, Nebraska is headquarters for the AHSGR; Bismarck, North Dakota is home base for the GRHS.

Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal is to welcome attendees at 8:30 Thursday morning (7/31) in the Parkway Ballroom. More than 40 workshops and related activities are scheduled during this gathering.
