Regular dances are canceled, so we have moved online!

Join us live every 1st and 3rd Thursday from 8 to 9:15 pm for fun dancing with fantastic local and national bands and callers.

All you need is a computer with the popular video chat app that starts with 'Z' and ends with 'm', and some dancing energy.

PATMAD membership is free, but must be renewed annually. Your membership will be until Dec. 2021.

NOTE: You can be on our email announcement list with or without being a PATMAD member.

Since we can't come to a physical dance, membership forms are now online:
