Frequently Asked Questions

  • What about college-aged guests? At every community dance we welcome college-aged guests to our events as DANCE SUPPORT.  We’ll collect a $10 deposit each from them, so they can wear our AWESOME buttons. They help out AND swing dance with other members of Dance Support. When they return your buttons, they get their deposits back and feel GREAT about their community service to The Dance Project. Read about their responsibilities HERE. Then, wait for them to SHOW UP and be GREAT ROLE MODELS!
  • Costumes or not? Your choice. Typically, about 50% of our guests show up in an outfit or costume that goes with the theme of the dance. Whether you dress up or not, our requirement is that everyone follow the Dress Code (see link above). Thanks!
  • Are guests allowed to purchase tickets at the door? Yes!
  • Do I need to complete the ONLINE FORMS for every event?? No, the forms are only required ONCE PER SEASON. They are good through August 31, 2022.
