Upcoming Dances

Tuesday Dances
(temporarily suspended)

Almost every Tuesday, year-round, hall open at 7:15, dancing to begin promptly at 7:30 to about 9:30 pm, at Gates of Heaven Synagogue in James Madison Park. See the Dance Halls page for directions and parking information.

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.

Open band and calling. If you want to join the band, the Madison Open Band (aka the MOB) has links to all the music played at the dances.
