PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD! Many people aren't on our email list, so please let your friends know we've moved.

IS IT EASY TO GET THERE? I got a lot of calls this week from people who were concerned. IT IS DIRT SIMPLE. Much easier than the Greek Church. Springstep is directly off I-93 in Medford, Exit 32. It is the first building on the west side of the underpass/rotary.
Detailed Directions »

Springstep is a fantastic venue, designed in 2003 as a non-profit "top" dance center, outfitted with the best sprung wood floors, perfect acoustics, award winning architectural elegance, and many other ammenities. It's also professionally managed, so I can assure everyone the floors are pristine and the AC is just right. It's right off of I-93/exit 32.

See you this Friday for another fun night of dancing, socializing, and music!

Friday, August 1: SAVE THE DATE!
