Put on your dance shoes for CDPL, Carnegie

Angela White has a love for ballroom dance.

As Crawfordsville District Public Library’s new digital initiatives librarian, White was looking for ways that dancing could raise money for the library. She didn’t know that Dancing Raine Studios had already reached out about running a fundraiser.

“It was just very serendipitous,” White said.

CDPL and the Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County are teaming up with the studio Saturday for “A Night of Dance” in the museum’s main gallery.

All proceeds go to CDPL and the museum for programming.

“We want to be able to offer the community more, so this presented itself as a way to do that,” White said.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. At 7, Dancing Raine instructors are donating their time for an hour-long lesson. Open dance follows from 8 to

10 p.m.

No dance partner or experience is required, but a good pair of shoes will come in handy. White recommends ballroom dance shoes or any leather-bottomed or felt-bottomed footwear.

Business casual dress is recommended.

Light refreshments are being served. Champagne will be available for guests 21 and older.

Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door and can be purchased at the CDPL circulation desk, museum gift shop or Dancing Raine’s new studios, 119 S. Washington St., Suite 200.
