Sunday Night Dancing with Instruction
Has Resumed

MSCD meets for instruction and dancing with recorded music every Sunday evening, 7:00 - 9:00 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 $3 (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. Currently we are only accepting previous dancers and those students who have been through our Madison School and Community Recreation class. And watch for an Open House in January 2023.

All participants are subject to our Code of Conduct.
