Welcome!

Everyone is welcome! Partners and dancing experience are not necessary.

There is an optional Beginner's Workshop offered 20 minutes before each dance.

Wear comfortable, non-marking shoes to protect your feet and our floors - a seperate pair of dance shoes works best.
You'll be more comfortable in loose-fitting light-weight clothing.

Each of the dozen or so dance forms during the evening are taught and prompted, except for the waltz and hambo.
