First off, if you are wondering about attendance for the events, for some reason, there are hardly any RSVPs. BUT the dances we list are consistently well attended (40 people and up) and our classes are as well, although like most classes, they are much smaller. Usually the classes have from 4-12 people. Write us if you want specifics on numbers for the class or dance you are considering.
We are Joe and Julie, avid social dancers and teachers. We are creating this group to find people who want to explore dance venues in Dutchess County and the surrounding area. Swing, salsa, ballroom, we love it all! We both lead and follow so if you join up with us for an event, you are assured of at least two dance partners in any new place. We hope having a group to go to the events makes it more fun for everyone, and we also want to support local dances/dance teachers. We also host a few dances every month that you'll be invited to. We host a few dance weekends away, including trips to dance in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., so let us know of your interest.
If you would like to be on our email list, please send a request to Joe@ballroomjoe.com and you'll receive a weekly email about all of our dance events. Also keep in mind that since we also post on Facebook and send out emails, the RSVPs for our events in any one group are always lower than the actual turnout! Many people come who do not RSVP anywhere, so come out to an event and dance the night away!
Welcome! Let's go dancing together!
