Our class meets Sunday evenings from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Davis Arts Center located at 1919 F Street (the corner of F and Covell) in Davis. Each evening begins with easy dances as we warm up from 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m; these dances are taught for anyone who doesn't know them. Then we teach several more dances, plus review dances taught the week before, from 7:30 - 9:00, and wind up with request dancing from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.


The Davis Arts Center has a beautiful dance room with a real wooden dance floor. Clean, soft-soled non-marking dance shoes are required*. We are very pleased to join with the Davis Arts Center to provide this enjoyable recreational opportunity to the Davis community.

"Dance cards" may be purchased in class on Sunday nights, or from the Davis Arts Center 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or online from the Davis Arts Center web site. If you register online, just print your receipt and bring it with you to class and we'll give you the dance card. The cost is $25 for five sessions for D.A.C. members, or $35 for non-members. Your first visit is free! The dance card will not expire, so you can come when convenient, no penalty if you miss a week now and then.

*Please bring a separate pair of clean, non-marking shoes to wear on the lovely wooden dance floor. No "street shoes" allowed! In other words - if you've worn the shoes outdoors and they might have any dirt or grit on them, please bring a separate pair of shoes reserved just for dancing.


Note Regarding Video Recording:

Video recording of any dance MUST be announced in advance (before each dance you want to record); and if any dancer objects, please DO NOT continue with the recording. You must also state the intended use of any video recording, i.e. for your own use only, or for posting on the internet (such as YouTube, or any other public video venue). Class members have a right to privacy, and that includes the right NOT to be recorded without consent.
