What we're about
Please join us every month for Contra dancing and weekly for English and Scottish country dance classes.
You are not required to bring a partner to any of our dances - the tradition is to change partners after every dance, so there will always be someone ready to dance with you.
In 2015, we had in May our annual Jane Austen dance (theme: chocolate persuasion) and on October 31st, we will be having our annual Pride and Prejudice & Zombies dance--the theme is "Fangs for the Memories". We hope you can join us.
You can join us Thursdays for English Country Dance at the Winchester Community Center, here in Las Vegas (just north of Desert Inn, at 3130 Mcleod); no prior experience is required. The walk-in rate is $6 per person and we ask that you bring along non-street shoes to dance (our center wants to minimize damage to their prepared dance floor).
We also have Scottish Country Dance on Fridays. Many of us who attend have been dancing Scottish for some years, so feel comfortable knowing you'll have an experienced partner, if you are a beginner! The charge is $5 per person for non-members of the Southern Nevada Old Time Country Dance (SNOCD) and $4 for members. The member rate is only $3, if tickets are purchased in groups of 5 or more.
Our Contra Dances are now being scheduled both in Boulder City (at the old Water Department building; now part of the Parks & Recreation Dept) and at the Charleston Heights Arts Center (CHAC). Please check our website to determine the dates and times for upcoming dances with live bands!
Contra dance at CHAC is $10 per person for non-members and $5 per person for SNOCD members, students, children and active military personnel. Any dancer coming for the 1st time gets their next dance free.
Make sure to check our website for complete descriptions of our dances! http://www.lasvegascountrydance.org .
We look forward to dancing with you!
