Spring Stomp! A Hoedown in P-town
April 24-26, 2015

Join us for an off-season hoedown in Provincetown featuring two nights of dancing, a day of workshops, and a lot of laughter. Join us for a lesson or two, a dance, or think about getting a weekend pass for $60 and save $15. Passes available at the April 18 dance, Dirty Water Saloon on Tuesdays, or at the door on Friday. It is a great laid-back weekend of socializing, dancing, and learning. There is even some guest houses offering a discount off their off-season rates! See Spring Stomp for more information.

What?!?!?! You don’t know how to dance? Don’t you fret none, we all began with two left feet. 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, thinking about that turn of phrase, “eyes peeled” is not such a great metaphor). 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).
