Ordway’s Summer Dance Series

Ordway’s Summer Dance Series is a weekly social dance event offering free dancing and live music in Rice Park on Thursday nights during the summer.

At 6pm, we kick off the dancing with basic lessons by professional dance instructors. After the lesson, you are invited to put those moves to practice during open dancing the rest of the evening with a live, local band starting at 7:15p.m.
