The week’s musicians are SUGAR BEAT: Elke Baker (fiddle), Susan Brandt (flute), and Marc Glickman (piano). As always, there’s a beginner waltz lesson at 2:45, included with admission of $15 per person ($5 for kids and full-time students), payable at the door in cash or by check. Music starts at 3:30 and ends at 6:00 pm. No partner needed and ALL are welcome. Dress is casual. Masking is optional, but encouraged.

During the band’s break, we’ll pay tribute to the recently deceased Bill Brimberry and play recorded songs, selected from Michael Hart’s radio show last Tuesday, in his honor. Please join us to dance and celebrate Bill. 🌹

Parking, Sunday, 10/16

Waltztimers, take note. Contrastock starts at 1:00 pm this Sunday in the Bumper Car Pavilion, and continues for eight hours. The Glen Echo parking lot may be more crowded than usual. Plan accordingly. See you Sunday at 3:30, or 2:45 if you’re taking the waltz lesson.

Sunday Waltz, 10/2

What to do on a Sunday when the tail end of a monster storm brings relentless showers? Dance, of course, to the music of WALTZ DU JOUR: Alexander Mitchell (violin), Liz Donaldson (piano) and Ralph Gordon (bass). A beginner waltz lesson at 2:45 is included with admission of $15 per person ($5 for students), payable in cash or by check at the door. Dancing from 3:30 – 6:00. Don’t forget your umbrella for the walk from the lot to the Spanish ballroom!

Covid notice

Waltzers, I just found out that one of our dancers, who was at the waltz last Sunday, tested positive today for covid, albeit with very mild symptoms. Though vax proof and masking are no longer mandatory, we strongly encourage you to be fully vaccinated and boosted and to wear a mask while dancing.

Stay safe. Hope to see you at the next waltz, October 2 with Waltz du Jour.

Vaccination update

After extensive deliberation, Waltz Time has decided to suspend the proof of vaccination requirements for dance attendance, effective Sunday, September 18. In considering the hundreds of attendees who have already registered their vaccination status with us, the diminishing rate of infections in the DMV region, and current CDC and Montgomery County recommendations, we’re confident that our dancers will feel comfortable attending the waltzes. We continue to encourage full vaccination, including boosters, and masks for those who prefer to wear them. We request that those with symptoms of illness absent themselves until recovery.

Note: Waltz Time may reinstate vaccine requirements if circumstances warrant.

As always, there’s a beginner waltz lesson at 2:45, included with admission of $15 person ($5 for kids and full-time students), payable at the door in cash or by check. Music starts at 3:30 and ends at 6:00 pm. No partner needed and ALL are welcome. Dress is casual. Masking is optional, but encouraged.
