In the face of the coronavirus pandemic, the PATMAD board canceled in-person dances from March of 2020 onwards (including this year's Medley Marathon). We will be monitoring the pandemic and city and state regulations, and deciding when it will be safe to resume dancing in person.
The dances listed here are our online virtual dances held twice a month.
SPUDS, Philly's phabulous open contradance band, has been holding online tune swaps twice a month.
Stay healthy, safe, and connected!
