Karen has years of experience and loves to call exciting dances that are easy to learn and fun for all ages and abilities. Singles, couples and families can all attend this monthly gathering. New dancers are welcome to experience this new, light-hearted form of social dancing. The dances are so easy to learn that all levels of experience will enjoy dancing together.

Prepare to tap you feet to their beat as you do-si-do and swing your partner.
