Dutchess County Singles puts on a dance every month!  The dance is held on the second Friday with music by a DJ or a band. A buffet dinner is included in the admission.  In addition to the DCS dance we also support other great dances in the Hudson Valley.

Dutchess County Singles Inc. (DCS) is a non-profit organization formed exclusively for the purpose of organizing social, educational, and cultural activities at which all individuals over 21 years of age from Dutchess and the surrounding counties can meet and participate in.  And though we cannot take full credit for the 52,000 plus poputation growth of Dutchess County from April 18, 1983 when we started through the last census (2010), there are numerous grandchildren out there warming the hearts of some of our original dance attendees. 

CELEBRATING OUR 31st YEAR!  Check out our Meetup.com Dutchess County Singles site or the Dutchess County Singles Website for the most updated information. 

The 2nd Friday dance is currently held at the Elks Lodge at 29 Overocker Road in Poughkeepsie and typically draws about 100 people. 

The MONTHLY DANCE runs from 7:30 PM to 11:30 PM and includes a wide range of music by DJ Johnny Angel (requests welcome) and a light Dinner Buffet with Dessert and Coffee.  Admission is $20.00. There are also Door Prizes and a 50/50 raffle.
