Lessons & Instructors

Social dancing is a wonderful experience and one of the best ways to meet new people and have fun. You don't need a partner. We rotate partners during the lessons so you will have the chance to dance with and meet everyone! So come join us Tuesday night!!!

Dances Canceled
for the Next Three Weeks
Starting March 17

Thursday Governor Mike DeWine announced the state will close schools for the next three weeks and ban gatherings of more than 100 people due to the coronavirus.

While our attendance is under 100 the Governor advised the private sector to use discretion as they can not cover all situations.

Consider one dancer who has been infected and hasn't developed any symptoms comes to the dance. During the lesson they expose all their partners about 5 times during the rotation. Then during the dance everyone dances with almost everyone. Their breathing is more volume and projection than sitting. And consider the “social distance” of the foxtrot and waltz. You couldn't have a better environment to spread the virus.

With the expectations that the virus will experience exponential growth it is likely that the cancellation will last more than 3 weeks. We will monitor the situation.

Snowflake Ball Canceled

Since the Snowflake Ball is within this time frame it is canceled also. We will refund all payments made so far and pay the cancellation fee to the Clintonville Woman's Club.
