Meet Me in St Louis!   May 24-27, 2019

WOW!!!   What a Great Weekend we had! Nova and Turnip the Beet rocked the house, and Susan Kevra and Chet Gray made dancing so fun!  There were wonderful workshops and special dances (French, Irish, Learning by Ear, Nature Walk, Blues, Techno, Fitness, English Country, Waltz, Swing) and an amazing group of dancers!  Whoo-wee!

We already have great bands and callers lined up for 2020 next year - Roger Wilco, Audacity, Gaye Fifer and TBA. See you then!

The park behind the Kirkwood Community Center

We dance in the beautiful St. Louis suburb of Kirkwood,  at the Kirkwood Community Center.  The center has a great wood floor and is fully air conditioned.

When not dancing, we can step outside and enjoy the adjacent park, or a stroll around the pond.
