The dance begins at 8:00PM and goes until 11:00 with a break halfway through the evening. Admission is $8, $6 for students, $18 per family, 12 and under free, which includes refreshments served at the break.
Singles and couples, new and experienced dancers are welcome. Traditionally each person asks a new partner for each dance so it doesn’t matter if you come alone, as a couple, or with a group.
