Everyone is welcome to these community social events. The evening begins with easy dances for newcomers, and all dances are taught. You don't need experience or a partner; bring yourself, a snack to share, and a smile.


Join us a few minutes early to get signed in and ready for our workshop at 7:00 to learn the basics.

Dance starts at 7:30 and ends at 10 pm.

Adults $7
Youth $5
Members $5
