I would like to find a place in Cary, Apex, or Morrisville where I can take my mom and she can dance like she used to. She's 77 and she so loved to dance with my father. Does anyone have any ideas? Raleigh's okay too.

I don't know about the other ones on lovebrentwood's list, but I know the Sunday night dances at the Elk's Lodge are still going on.

These are good dances too: Welcome to the Triangle Swing Dance Society ! — Triangle Swing Dance Society Homepage

Thank you both. I will check out the ones that are not focused on lessons. She already knows how to dance, just wants to find a place where other people want to dance like they did in the olden days!
