Regular & Special Memberships
Regular & Special Memberships
Memberships help support the facility during this crisis and will also bring you the benefit of
reduced prices when dancing resumes.
Now there is no excuse for that friend who is on the fence about dancing. Members can give
the gift of dance at a reduced membership price. The gift package includes one free dance
coupon each for all 6 of our dance groups! For new and past members who have not been a
member for at least 3 years.
If you have been away from dancing and not been a member for the past 3 years, why not
“gift yourself” and get back to dancing in 2021?
The gift membership is good for one full year from the date of our first dance in 2021.
Thank you to the State Historical Fund for their contribution to the first phase of our window restoration project on our 100 year old building.
