Workhouse Social Dance
August 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 8:00pm on day Third of the month, repeating until January 18, 2020
Join us for our monthly Workhouse Social Dance in the McGuire-Woods Gallery (second floor of W-16) featuring dancing, complimentary refreshments and cash bar. The social dance will be led by professional ballroom instructors Bobbi Brennan and/or Cookie Bell beginning at 8:00pm and the music, dance, food and fun continue through 10:00pm. All skill levels welcome!
The night begins at 7:30pm with a complimentary 30 minute mini-lesson led by a professional dance instructor, versed in ballroom, Latina and social dance styles. General dancing begins at 8pm and continues until 10pm. For the schedule of mini-lessons, see below.
We are occasionally asked about dress code for the dances hosted at the Workhouse. We do not have a specific dress code, but most attendees tend to wear casual cocktail attire. Some of our attendees dress more casually and some dress up a little more. Most importantly, dress comfortably as you will be dancing all night.
