NOTE - There are Friday Nght dances 49-50 weeks per year, depending on what days the Christman/New Years Holiday's fall, and occasionally I will have to cancel a dance due to snow in the winter. Also, no dance the second weekend in November (Swingin' New England Weekend). If you are coming from out of town, you can safely assume there will be a Friday night dance any other week, BUT ... it still may be wise to check the schedule or Call or E-mail.

Dance Ambassador Program

Goal – To never have any beginner or dancer new to the area, left alone at a dance. The Dance Ambassadors will be available to assist beginners during and after the lessons. Dance Ambassadors will dance with begin ners immediately after the lessons and introduce them to the “Group”. By matching beginners with more experienced dancers, I hope to accelerate the learning curve and provide a welcome environment for socializing and social dancing.
