- Social dancing: 8-11 pm
With the pressure of Feb 14 behind us, let your hair down and kick up yer heels around the dance floor with your partner. Don’t have one? Well, I can say that you can definitely count on having many 3-4 minute relationships as you twirl around the floor. Wait, did that come out wrong?
Join smilin’ folk (I can say this ’cause at the last dance I saw a whole bunch of smilin’ folk grinnin and laughin and socializin’ and lots of other in’s) two steppin’, west (and east) coast swingin’, waltzin’, line dancein’, cha-chain’, and more to contemporary country, r&b, and pop music. All for a low cover of $12 (includes the lessons).
Don’t know how to dance?
Don’t you fret none, we’ll learn ya. We got a basic two step at the beginning of the night and a whole bunch of folks that will help you. We are also going to be teaching basic cha-cha, waltz, and west-coast during the year, so keep an eye peeled (okay, if you think about that’s not a great metaphor). We all began with two left feet. Take a chance, have fun, and I think you’ll be hooked (I certainly was).
Social dancing starts at 8 pm and goes until 11 pm with our DJ.
FYI, This is a nonalcoholic venue (’cause it’s a church, y’all).
No partner necessary! Just come on by and there will be lots of partners to swing (or be swung) by.
