This LGBTQ+allies dance weekend is a great bargain where you can learn to two step, west coast swing, hustle, night club two-step, and up to eight line dance (and some easy ones you can learn on the fly). You will dance your feet off while our DJs playing a mix of country, pop, r&b, and more. Saturday night the “fabulous” Boston ReneGAYdes will perform a number that they will be bringing to competition down in Louisville in July.

No experience necessary (we have beginner lessons throughout the weekend) and no partner required.

Experience Provincetown just before the busy season starts. Guest houses are cheap. It really is a great get-away.
