Fall Dance Classes

Fall is here and all the kids are back in school and Billy Bobs will be starting their Fall Country Dance Classes on September 14th & 15th. The classes cost $5.00 per person per class with a $2.00 admission. Parking is free and you can have dinner after your class in our cafe and then practice. Leather soled shoes work the best. No tennis shoes, flip-flops, clogs, open toed sandals, etc. Singles will be paired up if we have any. We don’t guarantee dance partners. 17 & under must be with a parent or guardian and bring their own dance partner. We always have groups taking together so if you want to put together a group (family, office, church, friends, etc.) feel free to do so. Be there at least 15 minutes before your class in order to get a table, drink and wait to be called to sign up over the mic.


Sunday- Sept 14th
5PM–Beginner Country ( 3-step, 2-step, waltz & c.e. joe)

6PM–Beg. Country Cha-Cha ( for all the music with a latin beat)

Monday- Sept 15th
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–Int. 3-step(our most popular class. More steps in 3-step for those that know the basic 3-step)


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