Dance Groups & Celebrations
Dancing is a great way to get your work, church, or school group moving and laughing together! Or maybe you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate a special birthday, engagement, anniversary or other occasion. We love to celebrate! (Any excuse for cake, balloons, and a theme on the big screens!) We also enjoy fundraisers and have hosted several school dance-a-thons.
Our Friday night Dances with live bands at the Towson American Legion are the perfect place for groups to gather, but we can also bring the party to you! Contact us to discuss dance instruction or band/DJ bookings for your group or special event. We enjoy teaching private School, Homeschool, Church, Wedding, and Corporate groups, and have spent many summers providing pre-concert dance classes at Boordy Vineyards!
Dance Admission for Groups
For groups of 10 or more, admission to the Friday Night Swing Dance is reduced to the discount card/student rate, currently $12 per person. With advance notice, we can even print “tickets” for your guests, or make other special accommodations. Further discounts are available for very large groups attending the Dance, and for off-site group instruction.
Arrival Time for Groups
For maximum fun and confidence, encourage your guests to arrive in time for the basic Beginning Swing Dance Class prior to the Dance. It’s included with admission! This is also a good time to set up special refreshments, and discreetly ask the Band to play “Happy Birthday” or your special song at an appointed time later in the evening!
About That Cake
To protect our fabulous dance floor, ALL food and drink must remain in the refreshment area! Please ensure that you bring serving utensils, plates, napkins, cutlery, candles & matches with your cake or other food item. Better yet, have the bakery pre-slice your cake into small squares for easy eating and easy clean-up! Don’t forget containers or wrap for leftovers. YOU are responsible for clean-up!
Please enjoy your alcoholic beverages DOWNSTAIRS at the Legion’s bargain Bar. We are NOT licensed to have alcohol upstairs in the Grand Hall, and we strive to maintain a wholesome environment for our underage dancers. Many groups enjoy gathering in the Legion Bar before or after the dance.
Want to Sing Happy Birthday?
To request a special song, please approach the Band before the Dance begins, or between sets. The first Band break usually occurs shortly before 9:30 p.m., and the second around 10:30 p.m. (During those intervals we enjoy other styles of dancing to D.J.’d music.)
