Location: Glen Echo Park, 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD 20817
Glen Echo Park has been a part of Maryland's Historic District since 1891. Every Friday the park hosts a contra dance in their Spanish Ballroom or in their open air Bumper Car Pavilion. Contra dance is a style of partnered folk dance, and is a great way to meet new people! You don't even have to bring a partner! The dance goes on from 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm, however there is a beginner's lesson from 7:30 pm - 8:15 pm, which is included in the price of admission. We will be attending the Contra Dance night, but Glen Echo always offers different classes with other dance styles including Blues, Cajun & Zydeco, Country, Salsa, Swing, and Waltz. We can't wait to get our groove on!
