FTDS contra dances are held the 3rd Saturday of every month. Please join us for an evening of contras, squares, circles, and waltzes. Admission is only $5 for two hours of fun and fellowship.

All dances are taught and called. No previous experience or partner is required. It’s easy and fun. Just a short walk through lesson and you’re ready to dance! FTDS dances are open to the public and are non-smoking, alcohol-free. Dress is casual and we recommend flat comfortable shoes.

The doors open at 7:00PM, beginner instruction is at 7:15, and the dance begins at 7:30. We have a wonderful facility with a large wood floor. All of our dances have live music provided by The Old 78s.  You can find them at
