URBANA COUNTRY DANCERS

SPRING 2020 SCHEDULE

Special Notice
Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak we will be cancelling many of our dances this spring. We will try to keep the web site up-to-date on this, but if you have any doubts contact
ucd-info@urbana-contra.org
.

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 spring 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 spring you might want to check out some of the dance groups elsewhere in the country, or some of the dance weekends this spring.
