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.
