In addition to local dances, there are dances in or near Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tampa, Titusville and elsewhere.  Click here for more info.

We suggest you come to the Old-Time Jams and the Irish Jam, all at the Blue Tavern, where you can listen to fine music, get some food and drink, and maybe dance with a partner a little!  The Jams are often held outdoors on the back patio.  Click here for more info.
