Dance with a partner, work on your art, or just sit back and listen to Casey Murray (cello) and Molly Tucker (fiddle) performing beautiful waltzes on Sunday, March 24!
$10 for general admission, $7 for students, $5 for first timers!
This is not your grandparent’s ballroom waltz! Our community waltzes are an approachable partner dance that have more in common with twirling around at your best friend’s wedding than promenading in a fancy dress.
Beginners are welcome! Any of our experienced dancers are happy to give you a quick break down on what it takes to waltz. They’ll have you up and dancing in no time!
Non-dancers are welcome! Our fantastic array of local musicians are more than worth the ticket price even if you’re not planning to dance. Feel free to sit and listen or bring an art project to work on!
Interested in getting in for FREE? We need two volunteers to sit the table every month! Comment in the event if you’re interested!
