veryone is Welcome!

No experience is necessary and you don't need a partner! Basic dance steps and easy mixers are taught during the first hour. This is followed by instruction in intermediate dances, requests, and advanced dances including couple turning dances and set dances. Live music when available. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes with smooth soles for turning.
