Heading to Madison for the Northern Iowa game over Labor Day weekend, and love to dance? Then head to the Monona Terrace rooftop on Friday, August 31 for Dane Dances! In it’s 13th year, Dane Dances’ mission, according to their Facebook page, is “to provide a joyous social experience, through music, dance, and other activities that helps to facilitate improved race relations in the Dane County and surrounding areas”. You’ll enjoy live music, dine on international cuisine, and meet locals and visitors alike. Dance to the Tony Castaneda Latin Jazz Sextet at 6pm, followed by the Caribbean sounds of Paul Cebar and Band at 8pm.

Admission is free, but a $2 per person donation is requested.


About: Heather Blackmon-doForno

As a member of the Ohio State University Marching Band, I quickly grew to appreciate the dedication and pride each Big Ten Marching Band exhibits, as well as the traditions, history and culture of each school they represent. Being a passionate world traveler, my trips to Big Ten schools have always involved an effort to go beyond the game, scoping out the best local places to eat, delving into local history, viewing the campus architecture and learning about quirky folklore.
