By member request, it's different this year...

.... it is on Thanksgiving day

.... it is at 1:00 in the afternoon

.... it is free admission

What is the same is that there will be dancing.

YOU are invited to join your BDC family for thanksgiving dinner at 1:00 on Thursday, November 26. It will be set up family-style at long tables to give it a real thanksgiving feeling. It's just not the same without lots of people!

Please let us know if you are coming by sending an email to: or by signing the register at the ballroom. This will really help us get it all ready for you and make sure we have enough turkey, sides, and dessert.

  • 1:00 Thursday, November 26
  • Turkey and gravy will be furnished
  • Please bring either a dessert, vegetable dish, or your family favorite. What food reminds you of Thanksgivings in the past?
  • Music and dancing
  • No admission charge.

Sunday, December 6 - Showcase 2:00 pm

Your fellow dancers have been working hard to create a great show. See David Roland for tickets for detailed information.

Saturday, December 12 - Christmas Party

Hostess Maureen Matthews is already planning a very special event for us this year with an all-white theme - Winter Wonderland.

And once again, we are repeating the popular Christmas around the World food theme since we are so lucky to have dancers from all different heritage backgrounds - both International and in the USA. To name a few: Chinese, Vietnamese, Italian, Japanese, Polish, German, Russian, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, California, Missouri, Arkansas..... and many many more.

Whatever reminds you of Christmas past is what you should bring - last year we had 18' of table space full of very different foods, it was wonderful.

Important Note:
The board voted to make this party a fundraiser for fellow dancers, Skip and Cheryl Eckert. One year ago in November, they lost their son from a heart problem. Only a few days later their daughter was killed in a car accident. That is enough tragedy for a lifetime already, right? But now Skip has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing aggressive treatments. Please open your hearts to this family and help make their Holidays a little bit better. Together, we can do that.

Thursday, December 31 - New Year's Eve Ball - Save the date -- Advance tickets are already selling! More details next week.
