Dancers, we had a big jump in attendance at our first Atlanta Country Nights at Atlanta Dance in Marietta this past Saturday night. Over 50 attended but plenty of room to distance as AD is a large room for dancing.  We still physically distanced but many still danced with others as we felt that is their choice.  We'll have every other table blocked off with no chairs available at those, but have opened up seating for parties of 2, 3 or 4 at a table for friends that have been around each other during this time. If you have dancing friends you've been around, you can reserve your table at the link below. 
We return to Atlanta Dance this Sat night, May 30th and will be there again on June 6th. 

Atlanta Dance is located 2211 Roswell Rd, in the Marshall's shopping center. Just east of 75 and the Marietta loop. Doors open at 7pm. BYOB, coolers and snacks allowed.  Advance tickets are already selling. You can get yours (tables for 2, 3 or 4),, by going to
