Thursdays, 6:30-8 p.m.
Led by Donna Conley and Tony Cherri
Featuring east/west coast swing, ballroom, waltz, fox trot, cha-cha, and more.

Social dancing is informal, relaxed, and danced for enjoyment, socialization, recreation and health. The test for social dancing success is how much the dance partners have enjoyed the dance - not how "correctly" they have danced. Join us onThursdays to learn and practice some of the common social dances (swing, cha cha, waltz, two-step, rumba, foxtrot). We're starting with West Coast Swing on August 3rd, and throughout the month (except for August 24th). We will be working on partner dances but you do not need a partner to participate! Everybody dances with everybody who attends.

We suggest you bring a folding chair and water as neither will be available. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as we will be dancing on concrete - sandals and flip flops are NOT recommended!


If you have questions about any of these activities, please call 740-398-6603.
