Great News!!  The results from our Salsa Sensation PR Hurricane Relief Fundraiser were extraordinary!  On October 7, a large amount of people came ready to dance to our featured Salsa band, Tempo Alegre, and to also take a Salsa lesson from Mike Andino of Estilo Studio.  Because of our dancers’ compassion and generosity, $361 was raised just in the donation jar.  CJDS promised to match $200 of those funds thereby bringing the total to $561 in donation jar.  CJDS also earmarked the net proceeds from the Salsa dance be applied to the Fundraiser.  Because of the great turn out and support from our dance community, we are so proud to announce that CJDS is sending $1,795 to Direct Relief, the charitable humanitarian aid organization whose mission is to improve the health and lives of people affected by emergencies.  Direct Relief is instrumental in getting medical supplies and medical personnel to Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. 100% of our donation will be used exclusively for that cause.  Thank you all for making our effort to raise money for Puerto Rico so successful!

Singles and couples, whether you are a seasoned dancer or new to the dance scene, we invite you to join us!  We hold three regular monthly dances in Princeton.  The social dances include refreshments (some dances even serve hot food), DJ music, 3 hour dance party, and dance lesson(s). Please refer to each event (on the right) for exact details and dates.

Read about Our Mission!  

Central Jersey Dance Society (CJDS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting social dance and its many human and cultural rewards.  CJDS is completely managed by a volunteer, unpaid board of trustees. All board members are employed in non-dance professions and dedicate their efforts as a small but joyful gift to the community.

**We offer many events including local performances, free outdoor dances in Princeton, free lessons in Plainsboro, holiday dance parties, and a variety of inexpensive but well-received dance lesson series comparing to regular dance studios. CJDS provides a diversity of social dance experience (Latin, Ballroom, Swing, etc.) in the central Jersey area. 

**CJDS makes contributions to outstanding humanitarian causes and to the local community. Recent examples are: $500 donated to UNICEF for Haiti disaster relief, and a total of $800 donated to the Suzanne Paterson Senior Resource Center to assist with various repairs.

Thank you for supporting our events and making it all possible!

Sincerely.

Irina Signotovich, CJDS President
