First Saturday Dances

We appreciate the Eugene and Springfield Elks Lodges and thank them for hosting our First Saturday Dances during June, July and August.  It was a pleasure to have an air-conditioned space to dance, during the hot weather.  


As you can see, the dance community really turned out to enjoy the one hour dance lesson and two hours of open social dancing.   Most of the dancers who attend  are single, and will dance with a variety of partners, while some attend with a partner.    

Laura teaches the dance lesson at 7pm.  For the first half hour she introduces the basic dance steps for new dancers and the second half hour she teaches more advanced material for students who are more experienced.  So there is something for every level of dancer.

Our expert DJ, Robert, plays a great mix of swing, ballroom and Latin dance music.   He also includes music for West Coast Swing, Night Club Two Step and some Hustle.   The music is so good you won’t want to sit down!

We hope you will join us each month for our First Saturday Dances.  Location may vary and the dance that is featured at the lesson each month will change.  So please check our website frequently for updates and changes.

Happy Dancing,
Laura and Robert
