Welcome to Smith Mountain Lake USADance 6042.
FEBRUARY 14th DANCE IS CANCELLED DUE TO THE SNOW. NO MAKE UP DANCE, WE WILL PICK UP IN MARCH ON REGULARLY SCHEDULED 2nd FRIDAY.
Our dance chapter is in its 21st year! As a chapter, we focus on social dancing although there are a couple of competitive dancers in our group. We are serious about social issues in the community and contribute to other non-profit groups. We collect food annually for the local humane society to keep our furry friends fed and healthy. We also participate in food drives for the local food banks. We are available to provide dance demonstrations in the area for local events. Just give us a call!
You do not have to know how to dance to attend our functions. Lessons begin with the basic steps and increase in complexity to challenge the more advanced dancers. You do not have to have a dance partner to attend the lesson or the dances. As with many dance events, there tends to be more women than men but our men dancers are committed to ensuring all women get to dance. Our dance music is a blend of old and new with mostly strict tempo. Music is pre-recorded and a songlist is provided to participants to help guide them in what dances are coming up. We are bringing back mixers!
All of the Smith Mountain Lake USA Dances will be held at New London Ruritan Dance Hall in New London! We are very excited to be able to have a large space with wooden floors that are most forgiving to the feet! Infused water provided. We do not provide snacks but on special occasions, dancers are asked to bring their favorite snack to share. You are welcome to bring your own non-alcohol beverages/snacks however we ask that you do not consume them on the dance floor.
