LIVE MUSIC is back! Details below.
This month’s dances will be programmed, taught and prompted by caller Lea Smith, who, at 7:30 (immediately preceding the main dance at 8:00), will lead an introductory session for newcomers and old hands alike to learn (or refresh) basic ECD figures, including any featured in the evening’s dance program. No partner required; come as you are; if you can walk, you can dance. All dances will be taught and prompted.
Preceding the introductory ECD lesson, at 7:00 30-minutes of waltz music will be provided.

After a dry spell that started in 2020, we’re excited to announce the return of LIVE MUSIC! Our beloved long-time house band, Take a Dance, looks forward to returning in full when cicumstances allow. Meanwhile, a growing core group of band members provides great music at monthly dances.
Dances will continue as long as the public health situation allows, so the schedule is subject to change; scheduled dances may be cancelled.
