According to Paul Muhr and Linda Westergren-Muhr, if you can walk and count to three, you can dance. The couple will conduct four classes on the traditional dances of Sweden at the Swedish American Museum in Chicago at 7:30 p.m. on consecutive Fridays: March 2, 9, 16 and 23.

The emphasis will be on basic dance techniques, one step at a time. Beginners - will learn how to recognize music, connect with a partner, lead and follow. Those with advanced abilities - improve techniques and develop additional dancing skills.
