Welcome to Ballroom Time

Ballroom Time is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer group of dancers dedicated to the promotion of ballroom dancing at Glen Echo Park. We are pleased to announce that our first Sunday afternoon dance event will take place on May 28, 2023 (Memorial Day weekend) in the  Spanish Ballroom. Music will be provided by the Mike Surratt Trio. There will be an ABC's of Ballroom Dancing workshop from 1:30 to 3:30, designed for Ballroom dance beginners.  Dance music will then play from 3:30 to 6:00 PM.  Admission for the entire afternoon is $15 at the door. No partner is necessary to attend, and all are invited. Click on the link  Our First Ballroom Dance for details on the special showcase by Emanuele and Francesca.

All of our dance events are held at  Glen Echo Park 7300 MacArthur Blvd, Glen Echo, MD 20812 in the Spanish Ballroom or the Ballroom Back Room.

  2023 Sunday Afternoon Ballroom Dances

We plan to produce a Sunday afternoon Ballroom Time dance each month. Live music will be provided to dance Slow Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Viennese Waltz, Rumba, Cha-Cha, Samba, Mambo, Jive and more. Each dance will feature a beginner lesson, a mixer, and one showcase dance during the intermission. As interest grows we plan to add additional dances, workshops, and supervised practice sessions. A partner is not required to attend any Ballroom Time event. Dancers at all levels including total beginners are encouraged to attend.
