Atlanta Ballroom Dance Club
We hold weekly lessons for beginners at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Buford Highway. Each month we feature a different dance. The lessons are taught by local area instructors.
We have a public dance on the third Saturday of each month at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Buford Highway. Our dances feature a variety of ballroom dance songs selected by our DJ Cindy Johnson. There are several mixers throughout the night. Most months we have a dance exhibition by a local dance studio or company. There is also a drawing for door prizes. Attendance at our monthly dances is usually between 100 and 150 dancers.
History and Purpose
In 1981 there were few opportunities in Atlanta for the general public to enjoy ballroom dancing. To address this need, a small group of amateur dancing students formed the Atlanta Ballroom Dance Club and began to organize public dance parties. Since many of the other dances held in the city were restricted to "singles only" or "members only", ABDC's founders emphasized openness. The club was reorganized and incorporated as a domestic nonprofit corporation in 1988.
