So, a friend and I are looking for places to dance. Square dancing, line dancing, swing or ballroom...not clubbing, in other words.

*Free or cheap is best
*We'd be hard-pressed to find guys to go with us, so places/events where you don't necessarily have to bring a partner
*We don't drink and aren't into nightlife. I think I've heard of line dances at some places down on Broadway, but bars make me nervous.
*For square dancing, the only place I found was a senior center in Murfreesboro, whose website mentioned activities for people 60+. We're missing that by about four decades.
*We're beginners. We have some experience all of the above, but it's variable.
*We currently live five minutes from downtown, but have no problem driving out somewhere.

Does anything exist? My family used to go to a weekly free square dance lesson followed by a dance in Virginia (at a senior center, but it wasn't restricted), and I'd love to find something like that.
I have the nagging feeling I've asked this before, but have search the journal for both keywords and my entries, as well as tags and my memories, but can't find anything.

uh my comment was marked as spam because i had links, so let's try this again!



i can't *personally* vouch for this place as i've never been myself, but the long hollow jamboree in gallatin (on long hollow pike) has square dancing every saturday according to their sign :)

the 5 spot in east nashville also has retro dance night on mondays. however, the 5 spot is a bar... i don't remember if it is smoking or not (it is 21+), so you may not be interested in that one.
