We ask members and non-members for a contribution of $2 for adults and $1 for students at our Wednesday evening dance series. Due to Henrico County policy the collection of contributions on site is no longer permitted; therefore, we ask that participants utilize our Pre-Paid Dance Cards available in blocks of 10 sessions ($20 adult/$10 student) or 20 sessions ($40 adult/$20 student). Link for pre-payment information below.
Club member annual dues are $10 for individual and $20 for family collected each January.
No partner or experience is needed to participate. Approximately eight to ten dances are selected each practice session with a step-by-step walk through conducted by the caller prior to the start of the music. While dancing the caller as well as experienced dancers will guide you through the set.
Not at all. Practice sessions are informal. We suggest wearing comfortable clothing and non-marking, low heeled shoes for dancing (no flip-flops or high-heels please). Colonial period attire would be appropriate for our Jefferson Ball or other special events; however, while these costumes add a great deal of fun and splendor to the event, wearing such attire is NEVER a requirement to participate.
As often and as long as you would like. Pre-paid dance cards do not expire. We're delighted to see you every week, but if you can only make it once a month or can only stay for the first or second half of the session it's perfectly fine. There is no required attendance for practices or special events.
All family members are welcome to participate. Colonial dancing is a wonderful family activity which everyone from grandchildren to grandparents can enjoy.
