Welcome to the Capital USA Dance October Update

Greetings, USA Dancers!

The leaves are turning, the air is crisp, and the harvest moon is upon us. Lucky for us, the ballroom is warm and the dancing is hot. Read on to see what's coming up!

See you this Sunday...


New Year's Eve Dance

Save the date, dancers. This is gonna be good!

This year, Capital USA Dance will be presenting its New Year's Eve dance at the Holiday Inn Turf, and it's shaping up to be a special event. For the first time, we will be holding the event in partnership with Cotillion and The Benedicts, presenting the members of all three organizations the opportunity to mix and mingle at a bigger, better event than ever before! The Holiday Inn Turf is also working with us to provide room specials, so you can through in a night away with your celebration.

We're still in the planning, so tickets are not yet available, but the final details will be settled soon, so keep an eye out for details!

[Please Note: Several of our members have voiced concern for our choice of venue, citing the pending sale of the facility, but never fear! We have a commitment in writing from the management that the transition will not affect our plans!]
