Mostly Waltz

We’ll be mostly waltzing to Spare Parts at our April dance.

Sunday, April 7, prepare yourself for the eminently danceable music of Spare Parts, aka Liz Stell (flute) and Bill Matthiesen (piano). They’ve been with us several times before, and that’s why they’re coming back—’cause we love ’em. More about this popular duo here. Marc Casslar will host the complimentary dance lesson.
Sunday, May 5, an auspicious date south of the border, is no less important to us: it’s when we hold our final dance before the summer break. Come join us for the Cinco de Mayo Dance, with DJ Damian Vincent, who, with Janice Jacobsen, will teach a free salsa lesson. South-of-the-border-themed clothing is welcome for this festive and fun conclusion to our dance season.

Free snacks at HCD Mostly Waltz dances.

HCD’s Mostly Waltz events are from 3:00–6:00 the first Sunday afternoon of every month (except summer months, when we take a break) at Griffith Academy in Wethersfield. If you’re new to waltzing, come early for a free beginner lesson from 2:30–3:00. In addition, during band breaks we have mini-lessons on some aspect of waltz or another popular dance style. Our dances feature waltzes, waltz mixers, and other couple dances (though you needn’t come as a couple as there are plenty of singles to dance with). Every third tune is a tango, swing, foxtrot, or other couple dance.

General admission to our dances is $15, or $7 for students (with school ID). Volunteers are normally reimbursed for their admission charge in exchange for a half-hour of their time, provided we are able to cover our costs for that dance. If you’d like to be included on our roster of prospective volunteers, complete the form at the bottom of this page, including your name, email address, and “I’D LIKE TO VOLUNTEER” in the Subject field.
