This coming Wednesday, October 29th, the Manhattan Ballroom Dance Club will celebrate its
The Manhattan Club was founded in 1960 and has been in continious operation for 54 years! Over the years the Club's
operation and locations have changed, but it has always been dedicated to providing a wonderful dance experience to its
members and guests!
We will start the celebration off with a potluck dinner.
If you would like to enjoy some great food and friendly conversation please bring a dish to share with your follow dancers
and join us at 6:30 PM.
Following the potluck the very talented CASANOVA duo will be performing
for our dance! JIM BLADE and DIANE POWELL (Casanova) are truly great dance entertainers!
They play wonderful dance music and are just plain fun!
There will not be a pre-dance lesson this week because of the potluck. The lessons will resume the following Wednesday
when Dave Green and Linda Reiter will teach an introduction to American Tango. You don't need any
experience. And, you don't need a partner - we rotate partners during the lesson!
Besides the great music and the free dance lessons, the Manhattan Club has a big beautiful dance floor,
air conditioning, lots of free parking, free snacks and lots of friendly dancers! This all adds up to
a truly remarkable dance experience!!
The Manhattan Dance Club is a friendly non-profit organization dedicated to the joy of
dancing. The club hosts a dance every Wednesday evening from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM.
On most nights there is a free beginners dance lesson included with the price of admission.
