Queer Country Social Dance

Saturday, February 21,  2015 • 6:30–11 pm
Admission: $12 General/$8 GFP member
First Church of Jamaica Plain • 6 Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain, MA
(side entrance of church across from The Footlight Club).

  • Lessons: 6:30-7 pm
    • 6:30-7 pm: Basic Two Step
    • 7-7:30 pm: Beyond the Basics
    • 7:30-8 pm: Line dance
  • Social dancing: 8-11 pm

With the pressure of Feb 14 behind us, let your hair down and kick up yer heels around the dance floor with your partner. Don’t have one? Well, I can say that you can definitely count on having many 3-4 minute relationships as you twirl around the floor. Wait, did that come out wrong?

Join smilin’ folk (I can say this ’cause at the last dance I saw a whole bunch of smilin’ folk grinnin and laughin and socializin’ and lots of other in’s) two steppin’, west (and east) coast swingin’, waltzin’, line dancein’, cha-chain’, and more to contemporary country, r&b, and pop music. All for a low cover of $12 (includes the lessons).

Don’t know how to dance?
Don’t you fret none, we’ll learn ya. We got a basic two step at the beginning of the night and a whole bunch of folks that will help you. We are also going to be teaching basic cha-cha, waltz, and west-coast during the year, so keep an eye peeled (okay, if you think about that’s not a great metaphor). We all began with two left feet. Take a chance, have fun, and I think you’ll be hooked (I certainly was).

Social dancing starts at 8 pm and goes until 11 pm with our DJ.

FYI, This is a nonalcoholic venue (’cause it’s a church, y’all).

No partner necessary! Just come on by and there will be lots of partners to swing (or be swung) by.

Our Calendar

We also have a few other places (like Americana Mondays and Dirty Water Saloon) you can go for more dancing.
