enjoyable in social dancing with popular music.
Dance at your Skill Level
We dance at two levels of dancing skill, which typically corresponds to beginner
in the first hour and Phase II – III intermediate levels
in the second hour. An evening of practice dancing and socializing is planned once per month to add to the enjoyment and satisfaction of the dancing experience.
Experienced dancers will enjoy a fun evening of round dancing at the Phase II – III
level, starting at 8:30.

dances in Waltz, Two Step and Foxtrot. There is no extra fee for dancing both hours. If you have dancing
experience and would like to join us, we would love to
