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.
DJ and Dance Lessons
We have a DJ at all of our events, with hundreds of songs available. You can make any number of requests for your favorites. See our recently taught dances.
We teach 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.

Lincolnia Center in Alexandria is the primary location of our country dance events. On those Saturdays when Lincolnia is closed (for example on weekends of Federal holidays), we usually hold our events at Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church (AUUC) in Burke. If you know of a good location, please let us know.
- Lincolnia Senior Center

- Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church

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. Even if a couples dance is called, people still can line dance in the middle of the floor. Please see our floor etiquette.
Our weather/emergency closure policy follows that of Fairfax County Government offices (Neighborhood and Community Services). If NCS facilities are closed on Saturday evening, our event is cancelled.
