When you visit our events you will see folks doing the Charleston Strut, the Foxtrot and many other dances from the early years of the last century.
Just ask if you want to learn some steps or learn more about the music. We are very friendly folks and love to talk about the music with newcomers.
*We rent the Elks' dance floor. We are not affiliated with the Elks organization.
