at the front desk. We have many friendly experienced dancers
available to give you a hand in learning the dances.

NO COSTUME IS REQUIRED!
We welcome those who dress in Victorian or fanciful attire
however many come in modern day clothing.

NO PARTNER NEEDED.
Many of our dancers come as individuals.
It is a great way to meet people and
make new friends. Dances are easy & fun!

Though walk-ins are welcome when space is available,
it is important to plan properly to have abundance for all.

Though paper plates are available, we encourage guests
