The Hollywood Ballroom




The Hollywood Ballroom

Saturday Nite Social Dance July 16th
lesson from 8-9
General Dancing from 9-11pm



This Saturday Nite, Roxi and I will be dancing at the Hollywood Ballroom in Silver Spring, Maryland. Lessons will be offered in the Samba Line Dance, Mambo Shuffle, and Bosa Nova.

We will be joined by dancers from several local studios, including Chevy Chase Ballroom, along with Longtime local dance teacher, Terry Chasteen.

The Hollywood Ballroom Singles has been an elegant destination for social dancing in the DC area for many years. The founder of the Hollywood Ballroom, Bobbie, started the venue  with a vision of having a fun and friendly place for singles (and couples) to meet and dance. It is the oldest continuously running dance venue in the area.





This is Bobbi's farewell month, and the future of the ballroom is uncertain. We hope to enjoy the venue's 7,200 sqaure foot floor while we can, with great music and friends. We will be dancing there this month on July 16th and also on July 31st.

It is best to use mapquest or GPS to find the ballroom.

This venue has been a second home to many of us for years. If you have never been to the ballroom before, it is well worth the visit. The Ballroom has a enormous floating maple floor, and is decorated with beuatiful paintings of great Hollywood Dance Scenes, some of the most memorable dance images in Hollywood history are displayed on the walls.




 It's and end of an era. We all have many fond memories of dancing at the Hollywood Ballroom. It's not a studio, or a place that offers competitions or private dance lessons. The Hollywood Ballroom has always been a neutral venue where dancers go purely for FUN.
