Sunday Night Dancing with Instruction
MSCD meets for instruction and dancing with recorded music every Sunday evening, 7:00 - 9:30 p.m. We meet at the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center, 953 Jenifer St., Madison, 53703. There is no charge for the class, but a donation of $2 (or more) is appreciated for the room rental. Outdoor shoes are not allowed on the dance floor, so wear socks or bring soft-soled ballet-type indoor slippers.
First hour -- Beginner instruction with figures and step practice. Beginners should arrive at or before 7:00 p.m.
Second hour -- Intermediate & advanced instruction
Third hour -- Announcements and break, followed by request dancing
Social dance evenings have very limited instruction. Check our Events schedule to find the dates of upcoming social dances.
