The Valparaiso Oldtime Dance Society

The Valparaiso Oldtime Dance Society is a nonprofit educational organization based in Northwest Indiana. We are dedicated to enjoying, preserving, studying, teaching, and continuing the evolution of American, Celtic and English traditional dance, music and song.
Our dances are open to the public, and children are welcome. No costume, partner or experience is necessary. All dances are taught.
The doors open at 6:30 PM and the dance will start at 7:00. We encourage new dancers to arrive at the beginning of the dance for basic instructions. Layered clothing, comfortable shoes and drinking water are recommended. The cost is $5 per person, with children under 14 free.
