 If you haven't danced at Chang's before it's a wonderful experience.
Chang's is the oldest folk dance group still active in the US and has a
rich heritage and friendly customs, such as a potluck dinner after the
dance party.  A great place to dance, with a wonderful group which
includes little people, young people, middle aged people and people who
are dancing with grace and style in their 90s!
