Young Tradition Vermont is sponsoring 5 weeks of fiddle tunes club starting on 3/15/18, in preparation for the launch of Young Tradition Weekend on 5/3/18 at Burlington High School with a dinner and dance.  Children will learn 3 tunes….. 2 dance specific and 1 waltz.  The clubs teach the music, the members of the clubs will play for the dance all together on 5/3, and the music teachers at each school teach the dances.  The project grew from similar activities at Edmunds Elementary School and Integrated Arts Academy in previous years, now expanded to all Burlington elementary schools and linked to Young Tradition Weekend in 2018.  More info about Young Tradition Weekend here: http://youngtraditionvermont.org/2017/03/young-tradition-weekend-2/
