URBANA COUNTRY DANCERS

FALL 2019 SCHEDULE

We generally hold dances on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month. There are occasional exceptions to this rule with dances on other Fridays or Saturdays. The specific dates may depend on the scheduling of holidays and other events. All dances start at 8 P.M. and go to 11 P.M. unless otherwise noted. Most dances are held at the Phillips Recreation Center, 505 W.Stoughton, Urbana. Admission for most dances is on a sliding scale from $5 to $10, pay what you feel is right. A higher fee may be charged for special events.

This fall several of our dances will be held at alternate locations. Check the schedule to be sure you go to the correct location.

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