LEARN TO JIG DANCE WORKSHOPS
As a special feature at the Old-Time Music, Ozark Heritage Festival this year, Keith Symanowitz representing the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, AR, will conduct two Learn to Jig Dance workshops.

Keith plays percussion for The Creek Rocks and works as a Park Interpreter at the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, Arkansas where he often teaches folk dance and percussion for all ages and ability levels.
The first workshop will be held Friday, June 2, at 1PM on the MSU-WP basketball courts next to the Student Rec Center on the corner of Trish Knight St. and Garfield Ave. This workshop will be geared toward young people and promises to be an exciting time.
