CLASSES

Sunday Night Dancing

MSCD meets for instruction and dancing with recorded music every Sunday evening (including the summer), 7:00 - 9:00/9:30 p.m. We meet at the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center, 504 S. Brearly St., Madison, 53703. (Corner of Jenifer and Brearly.) There is no charge for the class, but a donation of $3-$5 is appreciated for the room rental. Payment by PayPal is also possible. Outdoor shoes are not allowed on the dance floor, so wear socks or bring soft-soled ballet-type indoor slippers. A great way to learn is to take our class through MSCR.

Each September, Sunday classes focus on improving technique.

All participants are subject to our Code of Conduct.
