The Lanesboro Barn Dance was begun in 1995 by Bob & Gail. It is an old-fashioned square dance, typical of many of the dances held throughout the Midwest in the past, in barns, homes and community halls.
The dance is held at the Sons of Norway Hall in Lanesboro (except the May dance), always with live music and calling (including teaching). It's air-conditioned, too! Dancers need not have prior experience, nor do they need to come with a partner. Admission is $7.00.
The 2014 Lanesboro Barn Dances were made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
2015 marks the twenty-first season of the Lanesboro Barn Dance. Here's the poster from the first dance.
