Social Events

We typically have 1 or 2 events per month

See monthly social event schedule below

 

Singles & Couples 

welcome to all our dances

These events are open to the public. You do not need to be a student of the Blue Moon Ballroom to come to our Blue Moon social events.  We welcome adults of all ages as well as high school and college age students.

Everyone from beginners with no dance experience at all to very experienced dancers. We'll usually start the night with a dance lesson followed by a variety of music. The lesson starts out very basic and then progresses to more challenging steps and turns.

 

Please bring separate shoes (clean and dry) to dance in.

If you are new to dance, then try our
