Dancing Under the Stars Gala

The Dance Club's 2018 annual Dancing Under the Stars Gala will be held Saturday, July 21.

For the first time in so many years, the stars were hidden and we were dancing in the rain, just dancing in the rain, with a glorious feelin' and wine in our vein, just dancin' dancin' in the rain (recall it Gene?)

Dance Trips to Europe

Our next Dance Trip to Europe is scheduled for 2019. We have organized ballroom dance trips to Europe since 1993 and danced our way through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech republic, Italy, Croatia, Transylvania, Poland and more. We cruised the Danube, Lake Garda and Lake Balaton. We attended formal balls and informal dances, saw operettas and operas, soaked in the hot spas of Budapest, harvested grapes, savored the wine and more. We traveled by deluxe coach with a private tour guide and stayed in beautiful Castle or spa hotels. Our custom-designed guided tours were always for dancers and non-dancers, singles and couples alike. And, because we organize the trips directly and there is no middle-man, our prices are much less than comparable commercial trips. Furthermore, we take you to places that no tourist would see on a commercial trip. For a sample itinerary and pictures of previous trips, click: Dance Trips to Europe
