Shimmiers, shakers, and sashay-ers — make your way to Oaks Park Dance Pavilion this weekend.

World champion dance instructor Michael Kielbasa will lead dance lessons and workshops for a range of skill levels and abilities (we’re looking at those of you who claim to have two left feet) at the Let’s Dance Weekend. Free beginner and intermediate cha-cha sessions will get the ball rolling on Thursday, April 11.

Put on your boots for country two-step lessons (for intermediate and experienced dancers) on Friday evening at Heart Of Rock Farm in Sherwood. If your feet aren’t worn out after that, swing back to Oaks Park for West Coast introductory swing sessions on Saturday. The dance floor will also be open to social and competitive partner dancing on Friday and Saturday.

Tickets to attend a workshop start at $35, or grab a partner and just go for the social dancing ($15).
