Upcoming CCECD Dances

Here’s a list of our upcoming CCECD dances, and the callers and bands scheduled for each. We will add more dates as the year progresses.

We hold dances on the second and fourth Sundays of every month, 4 to 7 p.m., at Lindberg Park Stone House (5041 Rhoda Way, at Ocean Drive) in Culver City. General admission $10; 18 and under $5; CDSS members and Culver City residents $9. No partner or experience necessary; dress is casual (and the hall can get warm in summer), but please bring clean, soft-soled shoes to change into.

Want to see the bands and callers who were with us last year? Check out our Past Dances page.

Note: Following the regular dances in August and September there will be 45-minute review sessions for intermediate and complex dances on the 2017 Playford-to-the-Present Ball program (set for October 7). The reviews are free of charge and will use recorded music.
