We're closed this week: see you back next Friday with the Winikers', Plus a new Chicago Stepping dance in the Annex.

(There is a pre-scheduled private function tonight unfortunately.)

"The O-Tones" were in the house last week with about 100 people in attendance for another fun night of dancing! Photos forthcoming in the gallery. Come join us next week as we settle into our new space! Scroll down to see the full Fall calendar.

Also, our new Thursday Salsa Night at the Somerville City Club is opening on October 9.

The new place is the Somerville City Club, at 20 Innerbelt Road, Somerville (map). It's adjacent to the Holiday Inn near Sullivan Square, directly off I-93 and 3 blocks from the Orange Line. There are also a ton of buses that come through, ample parking, an "Annex", and of course... a FULL BAR. For those that drove to the Greek Church from I-93, you probably went right past it on Washington St. In fact it's only a little over a mile away and about three miles down the highway from Springstep.
