I am wondering if there are any dance studios in the F/M area. My spouse and I have been taking ballroom dance lessons (where we currently live) for the past few years and we really enjoy it. Neither of us wants to give it up, so we're hoping there's someplace up there that offers them. (Looks like we'll be moving there soon.)

Also, can anyone tell me if there are any disc golf courses in the F/M area? (Disc golf is golf with frisbees. Yes, there are actual courses for this relatively new sport.)

Thanks!

I haven't played myself, but Oak Grove Park in Fargo and Woodlawn Park in Moorhead both have 18-hole disc golf courses, and there's a 9-hole course at Iwen Park in south Fargo.

I don't know anything about ballroom dancing, but I would imagine there is something.

Default dancing

Thanks. I did some online searching and saw that there is also a disc golf club, which makes me think there might be more courses than just those two. Does anyone know if there are more?

Also, does anyone else know if there are ballroom dance classes offered in the F-M area? I'd really hate to give this up! It's loads of fun....

Default Ballroom

I know that there are several ballroom dancing places in Fargo. I went to a strictly swing dancing club at the Avalon in downtown Fargo that was every Tuesday. Also, if you type 'ballroom dance' and 'fargo' into google all the other ballroom places come up. There's a big ballroom dancing club that has 3 different locations in Fargo but it's only offered September through May.

Hope that helps!

Yes! This did help. Don't know if we're ready for a "dancing club," but we want to continue with our lessons--and May through Sept would be great! I'll try searching as you suggested.

Default ballroom dance lessons

In response to the person or persons look for ballroom dance lessons. Two places in Fargo offer classes, one is Red River Dance Company, seven week classes and cover several dances, there is a second advance class once you finish the first. The second place is NorthernLights Ballroom, they offer one or two dances at a time, 10 week sessions, once a week. Both are very reasonably priced.

For your disc golf, check out PDGA Online Disc Golf Course Directory, it lists about every course there is.

Jamestown has a new disc golf course that is suppose to be very good.

I live in Jmst, but don't play disc golf. It is out by the reservoir. Looks challenging.

After you settle in to your home in Fargo, you'll want to go check out Bismarck. Spend a weekend during the summer. Spend some time on the Missouri River, a day at Raging Rivers Waterpark and check out the 18 hole disc-golf course at the Lions Hillside Park complex. It's a 30.5 acre park on a steep hill over looking the Missouri valley, the hill making for a more challenging game. There are weekly Ballroom Dance lessons at one of the studios there, but the weekly commute would be killer LOL I mention Bismarck though because the disc golf courses there are so much fun, and the topography of Hillside park can't be found anywhere else in ND. There is also a 24 hole disc-golf course at the General Sibley Park in Bismarck, though I have never been to that one. Mandan, on the west side of the river, also has a 9 hole course, Sunset Disc Golf Course, on the banks of the Missouri River.
April 26th the Mandan Mountain Jam Tournament will be held in Mandan, and on April 27th the Sibley State Doubles Tournament will be in Bismarck. August 30 and 31 will be the 9th North Dakota Disc Golf State Championships, which will also be held in Bismarck. Fargo and Moorhead each have an 18 hole course, however no tournaments are scheduled for either of those courses.

The easiest one is in West Fargo off of Main Avenue, nestled behind a neighborhood. The Oak Grove one is nice, but prone to flooding. The hardest one is in Moorhead. Frisbee golf here can be challenging, thanks to the prairie wind.
