We welcome new and experienced dancers and dancers of all ages. No experience is necessary, all dances are taught and called, and you don’t need to come with a partner. We hope to see you there!

The dance takes place in the Stone Church at the corner of Main and Grove Streets, just north of the post office in downtown Brattleboro, VT. The Stone Church features a lovely wooden dance floor and excellent acoustics in a convenient location.
