Monday Night Waltz
Dancing every Monday night at Lenora’s Ballroom (615 SE Alder). This is a friendly and informal event. The floor is not too crowded. The money jar ($5) is up front by the water jug. There are usually snacks (and snack contributions are most welcome). Doors open at 8:30, and the last waltz is at 10:30. Recorded music (quite varied) except for the last Monday of the month, when we get live music courtesy of the Waltz Jam. Grownup in charge: Marion
Last Monday Waltz Jam
Waltz Jam: A chance to get together and play waltzes (and some other music). It’s the last Monday of every month, in conjunction with the Monday Night Waltz: same place (Lenora’s Ballroom (615 SE Alder)), same time (doors open 8:30), same $5 (money jar up front). A friendly group - everyone is very welcome.
Or dance! Authentic live music (not that polished recorded stuff).
