The Family Dance series returns this fall with a concert and dance with the Alferd Packer Memorial String Band from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 30 at the Lawrence Arts Center.
The Alferd Packer Band will start the afternoon with a short concert that blends old-time music and timely humor. Jill Allen will join the band as caller for the dance. The dance selections are easy to learn and provide an opportunity for children to join.
The series is sponsored by the Lawrence Barn Dance Assn. Tickets are available at the door and are $4 for adults and $2 for children under the age of 12.
