Important NOTE: ALL DANCES THROUGH APRIL HAVE BEEN CANCELLED FOR NOW, including MEET ME in ST LOUIS, which is at the end of MAY!

If you would like to help us meet our ongoing rent expense or (even better) help our callers and band musicians who count on this income to stay afloat, please consider donating!  Some of us are sending in the amount we would normally use to pay to go dancing as the basis for our donations. (It's a thought...)

If you would care to make a donation to Childgrove (in any amount) here's the place:
