Timing, Pricing & Shoes

The dance starts at 7:15 with a workshop for beginners, and continues with dancing for all from 7:30 to 10:30 PM. Admission is $10 ($7 students/seniors/low income). Beginners are welcome; all the dances will be taught. You don’t need to come with a partner; other friendly dancers will dance with you. Please bring a pair of clean, soft-soled, non-street shoes for dancing. This will help to protect the old wood floor and keep the hall clean.

Slow jam

We welcome musicians to hang out and play tunes together at a slow, informal jam session before every dance. All instruments and skill levels are welcome starting at 5:30 PM and going until around 6:30.
