The Connecticut Dance Calendar

Some of you in eastern Connecticut might be interested in checking out what's across the border in Rhode Island. Of course, people as far as Hartford are only 90 minutes from Boston. Western Massachusetts should be pretty close to you too. There's some limited information for New York.

Most of the venues listed in the calendar below are detailed on another page. Go there to get more information on that dance location. Note that there may be listings for events that will feature swing band but don't have a dance floor. Always call ahead to confirm! Better yet: let me know about it.


Any events and venues listed on this page can be cancelled without notice. Note that some of them are suspended during the summer. If you teach classes, hold workshops, play in a band, or hold dances, please read the list of frequently asked questions and follow the format guidelines when asking to have your information listed here.
