There are not many places in this day and age to go out to an adult dance club without alcohol. We noticed this and have created an exciting venue to provide such a meeting place. This is a place to build community and connections, especially for adults in their golden years. No more worrying about children or work pressure; this is your time to enjoy new friends and favorite and new pursuits. If you have always wanted to try dancing - this is your time; you have earned it.
Our purpose is to provide a place for people who love music and dancing to enjoy getting together with a community of fellow like-minded people to have fun, relax and celebrate all things music and dance, including freestyle dancing, karaoke and learning classical and modern dances as part of professionally led classes. We offer a fun, no-pressure atmosphere where beginners can quickly learn to dance, while making friends and building confidence.
There is an impression in many people's minds that, “Only young people take dance classes, and I am too old to start learning to dance now,” or “I have no time to learn to dance.” We say, “It is Never too late to learn to dance. Dancing has many similar benefits and more as when we go to the gym, such as making you healthier, feeling vibrant and young again and overall, happier. Don’t let age and time restrict you. You have Your Whole Life Ahead, spend a little time every day doing something just for you that you enjoy and will notice the difference, as you feel Transformed!”
