Anything else you would like to communicate?
opportunities to dance are patchy in Alaska. People come and go and the base community is small. Summer, when everyone wants to visit, is really slow for dancing here, but feel free to check in anyway. You never know. Bear Paws Dance Collective isn't active any more, but the facebook page still exists and it could be revived if someone cared enough.
