The new dance is then reviewed for two more weeks for a total of three weeks at which time the dance goes into rotation for our open dance session. Of course if it is a more difficult dance or our dancers need more instruction, we will continue to review it until we feel ready to add it to our open dance repertoire. We encourage our dancers to speak up during the lesson if anyone has a question about the step(s) or having difficulty with any portion of the dance to ensure everyone has a good time and doesn't get frustrated. Remember, there are no silly questions and we are all here to help each other.

    Member - $20.00 per person monthly membership dues (paid on the first Friday of the month) entitles member to all Friday night dances during that month.

    Associate Member - $12.00 per person monthly associate member dues (paid on the first, second, or third Friday of the month) entitles associate member to two Friday night dances in the same month that dues are paid.
