Chevy Chase Country Club kicks off their monthly ballroom dance classes on Wednesday, April 20 with the first dance of the season: an exciting evening of Tango in the historic Grand Ballroom. Originated in the mid-1800s, the Tango encompasses many styles that developed in Argentina and further, around the world, making it a truly global dance tradition. Complete 2011 ballroom dance schedule available below.
This event features live music by the 10-piece Dick Elliot Orchestra and instructional dance lessons by Chicago legends Bob and Penny Urbon, followed by three hours of open dancing. For those who need a little liquid courage, a cash bar is available (prices range from $3 – $10).
The majestic Chevy Chase Country Club Grand Ballroom maintains its original integrity from the 1920s, and its 5,000-square-foot hardwood dance floor, stage area and state-of-the-art sound and lighting system provide the perfect setting for ballroom dancing. The Abbey, with its vaulted ceiling and vintage horseshoe-shaped bar, provides a cash bar and is a great spot for gathering and socializing over cocktails in between dances.
