Great Christmas Dance Tunes! Celebrate Dec 13 at the Skilaufers Dance

Join the Highlights on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 for the Skilaufers monthly dance!  You don’t need to be a member.  There is typically a small cover charge ($5) for great music, great dancing and great conversation! Here’s some info on the group.

Skilaufers (pronounced “she-law-fers”) is an outdoor and social activities club.  We ski, bike, hike, canoe and kayak, camp, dance, golf, play cards and more, depending on the season.  Most members are from the Madison area. Our monthly meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at the Eastside Club, uniquely situated on the shore of Lake Monona with a beautiful view of downtown Madison. Meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and include dance music provided by live bands at 7:30. This is a safe, social environment in which to enjoy yourself. Beverages are reasonably priced, guys and gals are friendly, and the music is always good. 

We WELCOME new members and invite you to come and meet new people and join in on our fun activities!

Welcome ANDY! Highlights New Guitar Player!

And what a gAndy Yaunuitar player he is! A native of Monticello, Andy is seventeen years old and ready to play! Between him and David, the other 17 year old in the group, the average age of the band has plummeted! Among the countless things Andy has already accomplished, he is collecting his second MAMA (Madison Area Music Awards) for Student of the Year! He’s sat in with numerous other bands such as The Jimmy’s, The Greg Anderson Band, and many others! We are truly ecstatic he found a home as a Highlight. Hope you can come out and see him soon at upcoming gigs which you can find in the “Shows” tab above on our website! Thank you and make today a highlight!

Lake Mills Dance Club “Springs” into Dancing!


It could have been rough going…..

With Saturday one of the first glorious spring days in Madison, reports of raking, garage cleaning, hauling, bagging and more were widespread as we started the evening.  All that fresh air and moving parts that have been “stored” over the winter can make for a challenge to get the dance feet moving.  But the good folks of the Lake Mills Dance Club are a determined bunch!  After enjoying a delicious meal, serenaded by the Highlights with singer, Marcy, right out by the tables, the group jumped into some dancing.  First request – Proud Mary  – launched a fast set with only a few slow turns and waltzes for this bunch!  Bring on the swing and rock n roll!

Happy raking!  Happier DANCING!!
