|Facility:||Dancing Bear Folk Center|
|Description:||At Dancing Bear Folk Center their mission is to recognize the rural Western past -- to celebrate the present -- and to preserve traditional skills for the future.
Many people who came to Wyoming from 1880 to 1920 were first-generation immigrants. They came from England, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, Czechoslovakia, Poland and Russia. They brought with them the traditions of their home countries - foods, songs, dances, stories and skills.
Some of those traditions are still practiced, but many are being lost. It is our goal to help preserve those traditions - to teach the skills to preserve them - and to adapt them to today's world.
