Weekly Dances

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 risks, Weekly Dances and drop-in lessons are currently suspended.


Join us nearly every Wednesday at the Brink Lounge for a relaxed mid-week dance with some of the friendliest dancers in Madison.  We dance primarily West Coast Swing, with an occasional waltz, nightclub two-step, country two-step, or hustle.

Dance: Most Wednesdays from 7-9pm. Dances may be held in the Nightclub or the Lounge – signs will be posted.

Intermediate drop-in lesson: Wednesdays at 6:30 schedule-permitting. Check our calendar for the most current information.  Participants in the drop-in lesson should know the basic moves and whips taught in the beginner lesson series.

Cost (lesson and dance): $7 for non-members; $5 for members, students, and sister-club members.
Payment at weekly dances is accepted in the form of cash or check only. No credit cards accepted, but there is an ATM in the building.

Location: The Brink Lounge

Free parking can be found in lots adjacent to and across S. Blount Street from The Brink Lounge, as well as on most neighboring streets.

The entrance to The Brink Lounge is in the parking lot on S. Blount Street.  Proceed down the stairs to the basement level.  Typically our dances in the main lounge right when you walk in, but occasionally we are in the Nightclub, which is a room in the back, past the bar and through the doors.

We encourage patronage of The Brink Lounge’s full food and drink menu.  Grab a sandwich, pizza, or beverage while you dance and socialize!  Please, no outside food or beverages other than personal water bottles.
