Mark Pixler's insight:

The ISU Ballroom Dance Club hosts Free Friday-night dance socials that are open to everyone. Our music is mostly big band with modern music used for the swing and foxtrot. Singles are welcome, and you don't have to come with a partner.

 

Dress is casual; however, indoor-type shoes (shoes not worn outside on the street) or socks must be worn on the studio floor. The practices are held on the ISU Campus in the Forker Building studio 196 (Toman Studio), from 7:30-9:45pm on most Friday evenings during fall and spring semesters when ISU is in session.

Des Moines Ballroom

Des Moines Ballroom | Central Iowa Social Dance Connection | Scoop.it

People come into the ballroom for many different reasons: to meet people, to have something fun to do with your spouse, to lose weight, or maybe simply to increase the fun in their life.

Mark Pixler's insight:

Every Friday evening at the Des Moines Ballroom, we turn the lights down, let the music play, and just dance - Waltz, Foxtrot, Swing and more. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know the other dancers in the area as well as the instructors, ask them questions, and to practice your moves, new or old. 
$3/ea every Friday night.  You don't need to come with a partner.
