ABOUT OUR DANCES
MMTD’s dances are fun, community-oriented events that do not require prior dance experience. Individuals of all ages are welcome, as well as couples and groups. Every dance is taught and called throughout the evening to live music. Beginners are encouraged to come to an introductory lesson at 7:00 p.m. Dancers should wear lightweight, comfortable clothing. No “costumes” needed. When dancing at the Ballroom, please wear soft-soled shoes (no spike heels or cowboy boots) to protect the wood floor.
MMTD sponsors regular contra and English Country dances throughout the year.
