Dance Exchange - Out Of The Vault

Join us on Sunday, October 9, 3:15-5:15 pm (Central time), for a special event! In this dance exchange, some of our most beloved dancers from all over will teach dances that were once very popular some 50+ years ago. We want to revive these dances in our groups and make them popular again!
