Learn the polka and country dancing in the Guy Hill Schoolhouse in the Golden History Park from dance teacher Mary Eiberger. Just like the pioneers and ranchers of the 1800s, we’ll be using the schoolhouse as a dance hall for the holidays! Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited so don’t wait to sign up!
Mary has been a high school math and science teacher and tutor for 33 years. She also loves to teach others to country and West Coast Swing dance. She started competing in Polka dancing at the age of five, and she has competed for many years in West Coast Swing dancing.
