Social Dance Parties

We run monthly social dances where we enjoy practicing and dancing with each other as a community! We have options for all the styles we teach.

We run 1st & 3rd Saturday Dance Parties where we play a mix of music for all the partner dance styles we teach. There is also a West Coast Swing Practica on the 3rd Friday of each month. Once a month there is a Line Dance Social, which is a fun style of dance that is done in a group and you don’t need a partner. Once a month we also have a Daytime Dance Social, which give those that are free during the day a chance to dance. Social dances are a fun and exciting way to practice what you have been learning in classes and make new dance friends!

Our Saturday Dance Parties typically have between 30-65 people in attendance, with the age range between 12-84. The music selection is mostly made up of: Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha Cha, Rumba, Nightclub Two Step, Tango, Swing, Samba, Quickstep, Salsa, West Coast Swing, Hustle, Viennese Waltz, Cross Step Waltz and Country 2-Step. You do not need to bring a partner to attend, as people mix and mingle and these events.

The West Coast Swing Practica will have only West Coast Swing music, in a more casual setting, where you can focus on practicing what you have learned in lessons and ask others for feed back. It is a very beginner friendly atmosphere.

The Line Dance Social happens on a different weekend each month, so be sure to check the detailed schedule below to find out when the next date is. You do not need a parter to do line dancing and the style of music is very versatile. You will hear everything from contemporary pop to country to ballads. If you would like to hear specific songs, each attendee is allowed to request up to 8 dances and these must be submitted 10 days prior to the social. Please send song requests to Amy Glass at: NWLINEDANCE@gmail.com.

The Daytime Dance Social happens on a different day each month, so be sure to check the detailed schedule below to find out when the next date is. The music at the social is made up of what is being currently taught in our Daytime Dance Program. These socials are very beginner friendly as mini lessons are given throughout the dance to help newcomers learn the basics of each dance.
