A fabulous array of foxtrots, waltzes, tangos, two-steps, blues and novelty numbers - all perfect for sociable dancing. Generally thirty dance numbers in the afternoon on our great cushioned oak floor in a ballroom with terrific audio and acoustics. Our orchestras are the finest for vintage balltoom dancing and our crowd is sociable and fun. Feel free to dress up. Snacks provided. A general dance lesson at 1 PM is suitable for all levels and covers the fundamental dance techniques, moves and offers great practice to a wide variety of recordings. The dance will follow from 2 to 5 PM. Our orchestra this month will feature pianist Rodney Sauer and Soprano Susan Rogers leading a six-piece salon orchestra. We hope that you will join us!
