Good Time on a Saturday Night

It’s fun, healthy, social and easy to learn!

Public Dance Events

We hold public country line dance and couple dance events twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month.  Everybody is welcome, all ages, experienced dancers, beginners, singles, couples and families; and you don’t need to be a member to attend.

Open Dance at Lincolnia

Couples Lesson: a bit of hard work before having fun!

DJ and Dance Lessons

We have a DJ at all of our events, with hundreds of songs available. You can make a few requests for your favorites. See our recently taught dances.

Young dancers learning

The old and the young having fun together.

We teach (and sometimes re-teach more advanced dances) 2 country dances at each event: one line dance and one couples dance . Our instructors are all volunteers and teach for the love of country dancing. If you love a dance and want to learn it, or teach it, please reach out to our members at the entrance desk.  We also frequently and quickly review previous lessons.

Open dancing

During open dancing, the DJ will call the song and which dance is choreographed for the song. The DJ will count us in so that everyone begins on the correct beat. Line dancers and couples are encouraged to dance on every song.  There’s always a couples dance match for a line dance song, and vice-versa. Please see our floor etiquette about sharing the floor.
