Dance Association

The basics

Welcome to Northern Virginia Country-Western Dance Association (NVCWDA).

We hold dances on the first and third Saturdays of the month in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Our dances feature couples dancing such as two step, waltz, and swing, as well as line dancing. A DJ plays the music. Before open dancing, we have dance lessons.

We provide a fun, non-smoking and non-drinking environment suitable for the whole family. Singles and couples are welcome. Partners are not required.

Please come out and join us sometime.
