Tis’ the season for caroling and dancing, even a little of both

if you please, but don’t forget to run your cold toes through the

warm sounds of Fort Collins’ bluegrass scene.

Coming to the Carousel Dinner Theatre Dec. 16, Curious Gage

performs their program, “Wishing You a Merry Christmas.” The

quintet brings their acappella sounds to make your evening warm and

bright with holiday cheer. Joining Curious Gage are special guests


Swing into the season with Fort Collins’ Holiday Waltz Night,

Dec. 27. Come at 7 p.m. for a free dance lesson, then waltz to the

music, performed by Eric Levine and Friends from 8 to 11 p.m.

Dressy or holiday attire is optional and snacks and non-alcoholic

drinks are provided. Admission is $8 at the City Park Center. If

you don’t have a partner, don’t let that spoil the fun, everyone is

welcome at Holiday Waltz Night, sponsored by the Friends of

Traditional Dance.

If you haven’t danced your spirit dry yet, be sure to catch the

New Year’s Eve Contra Dance, Dec. 31 at the Lincoln Center in the

Canyon West Room. Also sponsored by the Friends of Traditional

Dance, the 13th annual event is powered by music from More

Headlining Rasta Pasta’s December schedule this month is an

eclectic array of music. Get to Rasta Pasta by 10 p.m. Friday night
