In case you don't already know CASANOVA is our house band! Jim Blade and
Diane Powell (Casanova) are two great musicians and the Manhattan Club is proud and
fortunate to have them! They always play the best dance music! Their playlist includes music for
all the popular ballroom dances and is always very danceable! So, if you haven't danced to
Casanova before come give them a try. You won't be disappointed!
There will not be a dance lesson on September 24th because it is our potluck night. If you would
like to enjoy some wonderful food and friendly conversation please bring a dish to share and
join us at 6:30 PM.
On October 1st, the dance lessons will resume when Dave Green and Linda Reiter will
teach a beginning level lesson in Foxtrot.
Foxtrot is THE BALLROOM DANCE! It is very
versatile and not difficult to learn. And don't forget. The pre-dance lessons are FREE with
your paid admission to the dance!
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.
The lessons start at 6:30 PM. No partner necessary.
