The Permian Basin Dance Club is back and better than ever

The club meets every Thursday evening from 7:30 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. at the American Legion in Odessa.

ODESSA, Texas – The Permian Basin Dance Club is back and better than ever after its COVID-19 break.

“Most of the club was in the high risk category so we had to close very quickly,” club chairman Bob Landreth said.

But now the club is back and people are dancing like never before.

“We do the Two-step, Waltz, we do swing, east coast and west coast here, cha-cha,” Landreth said.

The club is for anyone who wants to try, you just need to be 30 or over and if you are 90 or over you get in for free.

Membership is $20 per year for anyone who meets the criteria and wants to dance.

Some people have even found relatives or a spouse after joining the club.

“There are a lot of people who have met their second spouse, in one form or another,” Landreth said.

Landreth himself met his current wife at Senior Citizens Dance Club, the couple married in September 2018.

The Permian Basin Dance Club is always looking for new members, so stop by if you want to give it a try, you can visit the American Legion at 2701 E. 8th St. in Odessa. The group meets from 7:30 p.m. to 9:45 p.m.
