Enjoy a variety of social dances at Glen Echo Park during the month of August, including swing, contra, blues, tango, waltz, and more! Of special note is the final weekend in August that offers two FREE events: Waltz Time's dance with the Devine Comedy, and the Family Dance with the band Rhys' Pieces.
 
Recently, the social dance program and couples who met dancing at Glen Echo Park were featured on CultureSpotMC.com. Click HERE to read the story. And our waltz dances were featured in the March/April issue of Bethesda Magazine (page 32).
 
Check out all the August dance events below, and be sure to visit the presenters' websites for upcoming events by following the links or visit our online DANCE CALENDAR. Improve your dancing skills with classes offered by our talented faculty - check out the AUGUST DANCE CLASSES online.
