Press release from White Horse Black Mountain:

There’s well known song in dance circles, inspired by a Dr. Seuss poem, entitled “Waltzing with Bears”. Well, the bears are feeding up for their big winter snooze, while at the same time many of us humans are preparing for a big Thanksgiving Day feast. Dance and live music lovers in Western North Carolina certainly have a lot to be thankful for, living as they do amidst a cornucopia of offerings for both terpsichoreans and listeners.

That bounty would have to include the White Horse Black Mountain’s Wednesday Night Waltzes, held this month on Wednesday, November 16 at 7 p.m. And because dancing to live music creates a special synergy, a band anchored by seasoned dance musicians Lew Gelfond (violin), June Advincula (piano) and Suzanne Hosch (flute and whistle) will be on hand to inspire those on the floor. Arriving without a partner is no problem, since there will be willing waltzers on hand, and waltz lessons will be available at 6:30 for an additional $5.

Event begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8.
