You’ll have the opportunity to dance with folks of all abilities, as partners rotate throughout the night. And when you don’t feel like dancing, just relax and take in the scene. Light snacks (something salty and something sweet) and water are provided. And, it’s BYOB (for our 21+ guests only).

Doors Open: 7:45pm
