Spring Dance Classes

Spring is here and it is time to dust off those dancing boots and start dancing again or for the first time. We are starting our new 8 week course on Sunday, March 15th and on Monday March 16th. It is a couples dance class, but we do pair up singles if we have them. We don’t guarantee dance partners though. 17 & under must be with a parent or guardian and bring their own dance partner. If you want to bring a group (family, office, church etc.), feel free to do so. Leather sole shoes work the best. No pre-registration needed. Just be there 15 min. early to get a drink, table and wait to be called to sign up. Lessons are $5.00 per person per class. There is a a $2.00 admission charge and the parking is free. You can have dinner in our cafe overlooking the dance after your class and stay and practice.


Sunday- March 15
5PM–Beginner Country ( 2-step, 3-step, waltz & c.e. joe)

6PM–Beginner Swing (aka jitterbug – the most popular dance)

Monday- March 16
7PM–Beginner Country ( same as Sunday 5PM. In case you missed a class you make it up or take both. Some couples take it twice as they need some extra help.)
8PM–Beginner Country Cha-Cha (for all the country music with that Latin beat)
