Spring Dance Classes

For those that have been waiting for the new dance classes to start, the time is here. We are starting a new 8 week series on May 10th & 11th. Bring the kids, they will love it and it will be something they will remember and use for the rest of their lives. 17 & under must be with a parent or guardian and bring their own dance partner. Adult singles will be paired up if we have them. We do not guarantee dance partners though. Please wear leather sole shoes as they work the best on our dance floor. Arrive about 15 minutes before your class in order to get a table, drink, and wait to be called to sign up. No pre-registration needed. The cost is $5.00 per person per class with a $2.00 admission. Parking is free and you can have dinner in our cafe over looking the dance floor after your class and then stay and practice. See you there.
