MADISON — Would you believe it? Dane Dances! has been lucky enough to survive and thrive for 13 years! In 2012, we are bringing back some favorite bands, and a couple of new ones to get you moving and grooving' out on the dance floor. All Dane Dances! events run from 5:30-9:30 pm, every Friday night in August on the Monona Terrace rooftop. We invite you to do the Electric Slide with 2,000 other dancers as the sun sets over Lake Monona and the Capitol is illuminated behind the stage.
This year there are five dances instead of four, and that is why we need your help. Dane Dances! is a small non-profit community organization that provides free admission to our 4,000+ attendees each night, but we still have to pay the band fees, Monona Terrace staff and other expenses. Please make a donation at our website (www.danedances.org) via PayPal, or send a check/money order to: Dane Dances! Inc., P.O. Box 1672, Madison, WI 53701.
With extraordinary music and outstanding food, Dane Dances! draws energetic and diverse crowds throughout the Dane County area. Dane Dances! showcases local and regional bands, funk, Latin, R&B, jazz, Hip Hop, and reggae are all in the mix. Here is the band schedule for this lucky 13th year!
