ALL WALTZ PARTIES ARE NOW CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Join us once a month as we dance waltzes and other social dances in a beautiful setting. No partner or experience is necessary. Each evening consists of a one-hour workshop followed by two hours of dancing to live music. About 2/3 of the dances are waltzes, with the others being a mix of polka, tango, schottisch, hambo or ragtime. For $10, you can enjoy a dance lesson, two hours of live music, and refreshments. Please wear or bring soft soled shoes.
The dances are held at the Monday Club, 37 S. Maple, in Webster Groves. Here's a map.
6-7pm Attend a Workshop
Each month we offer a dance lesson focusing on one of these dance styles: waltz, polka, tango, schottisch, hambo or ragtime. See below for the workshop schedule.
7-9pm Dance to live music
The Halcyon Light Orchestra is a rotating set of fine musicians - Martha Edwards on violin, Tim Hirzel on flute, or Justus Matthews on clarinet, Billy Boyer on keyboard, plus guest artists. Other artists over the years have included Kristin Graham, Mike Brown, Aileen Murphy, Paul Wexler, Ben Schreiber, Paul Stamler, Paul Ovaitt, Lisa Gilbert, Tim Lilly, Chris Voelker, and Matthew McKeever.
Please note the Waltz Party is on the Sunday after the Third Saturday (because we always have a contra on the third Saturday). When the first of the month is on a Sunday, it pushes the Waltz Party to the fourth Sunday. It may be easier to remember that the Waltz Party is always on the third Sunday unless the 22nd of the month is a Sunday. If the 22nd is a Sunday, that's a Waltz Party night!
