Friday, July 29 - Viennese Waltz Workshop

  • 7:00 - 9:30 Workshop with David Roland
  • Viennese Waltz is a beautiful dance but technique is very important to make it feel and look right. David is known as the Dance Doctor when it comes to spotting those little technique problems that get in the way. A two-hour workshop will give you time to really get it from your head down to your feet and frame. Repetition works!

Videos Posted

Need to review what you learned? We have videos posted on our Shutterfly site from lessons and workshops. The last five are shown with clips but to see all, go to the bottom of the videos shown and click or click here to "show all videos".

Also, we have many picture albums including 40+ special parties since December 2012 plus "the fire on February 23, 2014. This is a nice walk down memory lane, what we have at BDC is very special.

Floor Use Reminder

Practice: One of the benefits of being a BDC member is that you can rent our dance floor for practice about any time except during BDC classes and parties for only $10 an hour. You must be a member to rent the floor and there is a limit of four people. Contact Pam or Todd for the code to get in the building and for the alarm.

Procedure - You can either drop the money in the safe with envelopes provided (with your name) or put your name on the log located on the supply cabinet and you will be billed the next month. Please remember to either leave payment or log your time, we are on the honor system here!

Special Events: The floor can also be rented for special events such as anniversaries provided it is not already scheduled and it is approved by the board. Sundays are about the only evening time slots we have available - we are very busy! And that is a good thing.

Pre-Paid Admittance Cards

Need a gift idea? The new cards are printed and will fit the bill perfectly for any BDC activity. The cards may be purchased in any amount for any BDC activity. - classes, parties, workshops, balls! This is a great a way to encourage a friend to give dancing a try or simply make it easier for our current members to participate a little more. For more information email Connie Vance -


To protect our beautiful floor, please wear dance shoes or smooth leather soles that have been cleaned of street dirt. Spike heels or other type shoes will harm the floor.
