Join us once a month as we dance waltzes and other social dances in a beautiful setting. No partner or experience is necessary. Each evening consists of a one-hour workshop followed by two hours of dancing to live music. About 2/3 of the dances are waltzes, with the others being a mix of polka, tango, schottisch, hambo or ragtime. For $10, you can enjoy a dance lesson, two hours of live music, and refreshments. Please wear or bring soft soled shoes.
The dances are held at the Monday Club, 37 S. Maple, in Webster Groves. Here's a map.
6-7pm Attend a Workshop
Each month we offer a dance lesson focusing on one of these dance styles: waltz, polka, tango, schottisch, hambo or ragtime. See below for the workshop schedule.
7-9pm Dance to the music of the Halcyon Light Orchestra
The Halcyon Light Orchestra consists of five players, Martha Edwards on violin, Tim Hirzel on flute, Justus Matthews on clarinet, Kristin Graham on keyboard, Mike Brown on bass, plus guest artists. Guest artists have included Aileen Murphy, Paul Wexler, Ben Schreiber, Paul Stamler, Paul Ovaitt, Lisa Gilbert, and Chris Voelker.
Please note the Waltz Party is on the Sunday after the Third Saturday (because we always have a contra on the third Saturday). When the first of the month is on a Sunday, it pushes the Waltz Party to the fourth Sunday. It may be easier to remember that the Waltz Party is always on the third Sunday unless the 22nd of the month is a Sunday. If the 22nd is a Sunday, that's a Waltz Party night!
