URBANA COUNTRY DANCERS

SPRING 2016 SCHEDULE

We generally dance on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month (with occasional dances on Saturdays and additional Fridays). All dances run from 8 to 11 P.M. unless otherwise noted. There is a new dancer orientation workshop at 7:30 prior to most dances. Most of the dances are at the Phillips Recreation Center, 505 W.Stoughton, Urbana. Admission $5 (students/seniors $4; under 13 free). Special events may have a higher admission price.

If you are going to be traveling this spring you might want to check out some of the dance groups elsewhere in the country, or some of the dance weekends this spring.
