What we're about

This meetup group was started to create a wonderful dance community in the VA/MD/DC area. This group is open to all, and is designed to create opportunities for us to learn about all different types of dance and enjoy dancing to them. Dance to east coast swing, cha cha, disco, ballroom, country, latin and more! 
We'll announce events here as they're set up! Thank you so much for joining us!
If you have an idea for a type of dance you'd like to see featured or event you would like to see happen, let us know!
