Do come to our dance Saturday:

There’s a dance in JP this Saturday, as usual:

WHEN:  Saturday, Dec. 10 , 7:30-10:30 PM
WHO:   Caller: Rich Sbardella; Music: Woody & the Westside Warblers
WHERE: First Church (U-U) of Jamaica Plain, Centre & Eliot Sts. 

The compensation for the short days we get at this time of year is long nights, which of course are best spent dancing. The calls of Rich Sbardella and the tunes of Woody & the Westside Warblers (Bob Elliott, David Horne, Camilla Streeter, and Christine Warren) will provide the necessary stimulus, and you and your fellow dancers will do the rest!

Note that there is no dance on the fourth Saturday of December (the. 24th), but we will have an especially festive one the following Saturday, New Year’s Eve. Details to follow.


We always need volunteers to help set up and run the dance, and we still need several for this dance. If you’d like to help, contact


Proof of vaccination (including booster, if eligible) is required for admission to the dance. Any one of (1) vaccination card, (2) a photograph of a vaccination card, or (3) a digital record of vaccination is acceptable.

Masks must be worn (over your mouth and nose) in the hall at all times, except when sipping water. We will have some available in case you forget to bring yours. (Callers and musicians may be maskless while performing.) 

Please do not bring snacks to share. Any food you bring for yourself should be eaten outside. We encourage you to bring your own water bottle, but we will have water and cups available.

If you’re not feeling well or have a rash, please stay home.


Admission is $5.00-$15.00 (sliding scale). Free for children 12 and under.

We're at the First Church Unitarian-Universalist in downtown Jamaica
Plain, on Eliot St. at the corner of Centre St., opposite the monument.

Please bring soft-soled shoes.
Please do not wear perfume, cologne, or other scented products, as some of our dancers are chemically sensitive, and experience discomfort when exposed to these materials.
