Your donations are the sole source for our hall rentals. Please give what you can — many folks give about $5. For students, $3 is typical. If you're coming regularly, you could consider paying $50 for three months of dancing.

If you are interested in calling or sitting in with the band, please contact us and introduce yourself. The music for the co-op band (MadCoCo) is available here.
