Summer Dance Classes

Summer is here and Billy Bobs is starting their couples dance classes back up on July 13th and 14th. Lessons are $5.00 per person with a $2.00 admission. Parking is free and you can have dinner in our cafe overlooking the dance floor after your class. 17 & under must be with a parent or guardian and bring their own partner. Groups are welcome. If we have singles, we pair them up on the first lesson. We don’t guarantee dance partners though. Leather sole shoes work the best.


Sunday- July 13th
5PM–Beginner Country ( 3-step, 2-step, waltz & c.e. joe)
 6PM–Beginner Push (aka as West Coast Swing. If you like blues music, you will love this dance)
Monday- July 14th
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 Swing (

No. 1 dance in the world. AKA as East Coast Swing. Calling all jitterbug fans to come join in on the fun.)


Remember you can eat after your class at our cafe overlooking the dance floor and then stay and practice.
