We are a social club that preserves and teaches a unique style of dance called D.C. Hand Dance (DCHD) that originated in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area in the mid-1950's. This smooth style of swing evolved from Jitterbug and was known in its early years as "fast dance." D.C. Hand Dance is noted for its complex hand turns done in circular and slotted patterns to the beat of slow to moderate tempo music.
We dance at various places during the week and one Saturday of each month. Come take our free lessons, provided by certified Hand Dance Instructors. See details about our weekly and monthly dances - Weekly and Monthly Dances.
