Carolina Pines Dance Club is a local social dance club that meets monthly at the National Athletic Village (NAV). The next two dances will take place on November 20 and December 18.
“We love to dance and enjoy the excitement, romance and health benefits,” a spokesperson said. “Visitors are welcome to attend and, as we teach a lesson first, beginning dancers are also welcome.”
Dances are open to adults and young adults ages 12-18 who conduct themselves appropriately.
“Dress code is dressy casual, but no jeans, please,” the spokesperson said. “Smooth leather-bottomed shoes are recommended.”
Admission is $15 per person. $10 covers venue; $5 covers other expenses. Doors open at 6 p.m., with dance classes from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. dance from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and cleaning from 9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Snacks and beverages, including beer and wine, are available for purchase in the concession area. “Couples and singles are welcome at the CPDC, as the dancers change partners and everyone starts dancing,” the spokesperson said.
The dances will offer a variety of musical styles so participants can enjoy many types of social dancing. “Because the shag and the swing (east coast and west coast) are so popular, we’ll have a lot of them”, , etc.). Of course, there will also be slow dances during the evening. When country music is played, it can be two-step dancing, waltz, swing, rumba, cha cha, polka, or line dancing.
“Yes, we will have line dancing. In fact, part of the dance floor has been designated for it. This way, partner dancing and line dancing can take place at the same time without competing for floor space. Whenever you hear a song that makes you want to line dance, go for it.
The NAV is located at 201 Air Tool Drive, Southern Pines.
