Did you know that, besides ballroom, our dance bands play many of today’s popular dances, such as West Coast Swings, Country Dances, Waltzes, Cha Cha’s and even some Salsa/Bachata. The bands will play what our dancers enjoy.

Our Sunday Dance Club is now an “open club,” and membership is not required to come and enjoy a great evening. Membership does have its benefits, but we recognize the changing times, and everyone likes to come and go as they please.

Our dances are held in the San Tan Ballroom at Cottonwood Country Club. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., and the band plays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Non-member tickets are $10 per person. A cash bar is available.

Please make your reservations via email to or call ahead using the information at our website, It will help us ensure enough snacks and seating are available.

Want to improve your dancing? Mary Lou Kaye, our club’s resident dance instructor, will help start our season with her special “Social Dance Class.” This one-hour class is not geared toward a single dance, but helps any novice dancer to dance to a greater variety of dances. The dance class will be held in Room A-6 (off the breezeway behind the library) starting at 5:00 p.m.; $5.00 per person.

Our Sunday Dance Club is open to everyone, so please come and enjoy a great evening with us.

Please Note: Dress is business club casual (ties optional), but absolutely no shorts, t-shirts or flip flops. Thank you.
