Harvest Moon Barn Dance Saturday
Santa Paula News
Published: September 25, 2013
Everyone is invited to the Museum of Ventura County’s Agriculture Museum on Saturday, September 28, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., for an old-fashioned country barn dance. To celebrate the Santa Paula Museum’s second anniversary, the Museum will roll back their tractors to make room for dancing.
Caller Wyane Simpson, who teaches square dancing and line dancing throughout Southern California, will bring music and will “talk-through” basic dance steps so beginners or those just a bit rusty on their do-si-dos, allemande lefts, shuffles and slides can join the fun. Bring a partner or come on your own and meet people who like to dance! Anniversary cake and lemonade will be served, and a no-host bar will be available. By evening’s end, everyone will be getting the hang of the reel, promenade, bump and strut.
Admission to the Harvest Moon Barn Dance is $5 for Museum members, $10 for the general public, and $2 for kids under 18, with an adult. Reservations are appreciated, and can be made by calling the Agriculture Museum at (805) 525-3100.
Wyane Simpson calls and teaches square dancing and line dancing throughout Southern California, and has performed at square dance conventions in California and in several other states. He teaches dance classes weekly in Ventura for the Bachelors and Bachelorettes square dance club and in Canoga Park for the Heel, Toe and Go line dance club.
The Museum of Ventura County’s Agriculture Museum is located in historic downtown Santa Paula at 926 Railroad Avenue, Santa Paula, California. Hours are 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. General admission is $4 adults, $3 seniors, $1 children ages 6-17. Free for Museum of Ventura County members and children ages 5 and younger. Paid events include free admission to the galleries, and the first Sunday of every month is free general admission to the public.
