Theme Dance Parties 2019

The Carolina Dance Club is proud to sponsor a number of fun theme dance events in 2019 for your dancing and entertainment pleasure. All of our regular dances and special theme dances are open to the public and are smoke free. Free Introductory (Beginner Dance Lessons) are provided before the social dancing – no partner is necessary to participate. It’s a great way to meet new people and learn a few dance steps.

Several times a year we go all out and bring you some very serious theme parties. Lots of dancers, fantastic decorations, fun dance mixers, prizes and just another great reason to get out and social dance. Miss our last theme party? Make plans to join us next time.

Want to come to the dance for free? We appreciate volunteers and will give you a free pass to get into our dances when you volunteer. You can elect to set up decorations, work at the registration desk or breakdown at the end of our dances. Need to contact us?
