Okay, it’s not a HUGE snowfall but it will be during rush hour so we’ve cancelled tonight’s (February 12) Dirty Water Saloon will return next week with Bucky DJing and some sort of lessons 🙂

Queer Country Social
Featuring West Coast Swing Lesson at 7

This Saturday, February 16, another storm is due in but forecast to be rain. Hopefully we’ll get lucky with this one and not miss having Ballroom in Boston back again at our Queer Country Social to teach us west coast moves (they did a great workshop on whip variations in November).

Spring Stomp is Approaching

And in case you need proof that Winter is almost over, Spring Stomp is fast approaching April 26-28, 2019

Tentative Schedule

  • a Friday night dance
  • Saturday workshops (slightly adjusted to have West Coast Swing be longer or maybe two sections),
  • Sunday Tea dance.
  • I may include a stretching class before workshops on Saturday and Sunday.

The venues:

  • Town Hall for Friday/Saturday dances and workshops
  • The Pilgrim House for Saturday workshops and Sunday Tea Dance.

Instructors

I’ll be contacting and firming up instructors this week (Conrad is confirmed and just need to make sure Art, Alan, and Simone are still available).

That’s it for now,
Stay Safe, Drink Cocoa, Enjoy the last days of winter (really, it does have to end).

See you on the dance floor,

Line Dancing at GFP's Spring Stomp! A Hoedown in P-town

Spring Stomp April 24-26, 2020 – Get yer tickets now!

We love to dance — especially country western dancing — and we have been putting on a weekend of dance in April for more than 25 years. We developed a weekend of dances and workshop where you can learn then practice what you’ve learned. Best of all, you don’t need a partner or experience. The whole emphasis on this weekend (and all our dances) is to create an environment that you can make mistakes, laugh it off, and keep going. you can learn the basics or a few new moves if you already know it. Professional instruction in both our workshops and lessons will get you on the dance floor and (along with the rest of us) we will try to remember what we were taught.

This LGBTQ+allies dance weekend is a great bargain too: several hours of professional instruction and three dances all for under $100 (that is if you don’t procrastinate). You can learn two-step, west coast swing, a bunch of line dances, and the hustle and one other type of dance – such as cha-cha, nightclub two-step, polka, or waltz. Dance your boots off to a eclectic mix of music our DJs pick from many genres (country, pop, r&b, Americana, and more). We even have the occasional dance performance such as our own “fabulous” Boston ReneGAYdes during our Saturday dance.

No experience necessary (Don’t you fret none, we’ll learn ya – we have beginner lessons throughout the weekend and a lot of the line dances and other partner dances can be learned on the fly) and no partner required.

Off season rates! Experience Provincetown just before the busy season starts. Guest houses are on their off-season rates — as much as 1/3 to 1/2 off their peak season rate.

It really is a great get-away. You’ll head  home tired but with a smile on your face and a bunch of new friends from not just around New England but in Canada, DC, Philly, and even Atlanta!
