Come Dance With Us! Waltz through our doorway on Monday evenings. Swing in from the east coast and from the west coast at 7pm and be greeted by local and visiting ballroom dancers eager to make your acquaintance. We offer a dance lesson taught by a professional starting at 7pm. It could be a cha cha, a rumba, a foxtrot - maybe a salsa. It will be fun! After the lesson you can quickstep your way over to a variety of refreshments and meet our members and guests. General dancing starts at 8pm and continues to 10pm. We look forward to meeting you!
