The Central Jersey Dance Society, founded in March of 2001, was established by dancers for dancers, in order to promote and develop social dancing in the Central Jersey/Princeton area. The main goals of the organization are:
- To promote and develop the camaraderie between dancers of all levels.
- To introduce beginner dancers to the joys of dancing and the dance community
- To provide dancers with dance events and workshops that will enhance and improve their dance abilities
- To associate and work with other dance organizations in the area
- To promote and/or provide events that may include friendly competition and showcase venues.
- To inform the society members of events, workshops, venues, competitions, etc. and keep abreast of developments in the dance community.
- To provide an open dance environment where dancers of all levels will have the opportunity to practice, learn and enjoy themselves.
Presently, we offer 3 dances each month. Each dance includes a lesson followed by open dancing to recorded or live music. First Saturday, Salsa Sensation dance includes a mix of latin styles, including salsa, bachata, merengue, and cha cha. Second Saturday, no dance. Third Saturday, No Name
dance features dance styles including west coast swing, hustle, and more, which are commonly considered part of a
"California Mix." Fourth Sunday, Pure Ballroom includes waltz, foxtrot, ballroom tango, quickstep, Viennese waltz, cha cha, rumba, samba, and swing/jive, with an occasional Argentine tango or salsa. Fifth Saturday, Special Event dance when available. We welcome all dancers, from beginner to advanced, to come out to one of our dances and give us a whirl. Please note: we are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
