Come and dance!

Come and join us for our next dance on Saturday March 11th. We will have our own High Country Dance Band providing great dance music and Ric Goldman providing excellent dance instruction. Bring your friends or come by yourself to help us celebrate with a great night of live music!

Our dances are held at the Pine Forest Grange just off the parkway at the Empire exit, turn north on Boyd Acres Road (go about three blocks, it’s on the right). The dancing hall has good acoustics and ample parking (no stairs to navigate). Our dances are alcohol and smoke-free, clean soft-soled shoes are appreciated. Admission is $8 per person/$6 student rate/$20 families. Children 10 and under are free, but must be accompanied and supervised by a paying adult. Dances in Bend are held autumn through spring on Second Saturdays 7 pm to 9:30 pm, beginners instruction and warm up starts at 7:00pm, so please come a little early. Our events are open to everyone- invite a friend or two, it’s an effective way to spread the word about our dances
