Dance Details

This year we will have all of our dances at the Elks Lodge Ballroom, 934 Lewis Ave., Billings, MT, on Saturday evenings.

We dance to The John Fox Sound from Livingston. John Fox plays all of the classics and mixes newer songs with a ballroom and Latin feel.

Music and Dancing Styles

While we ask the band to play Ballroom and Latin music, you are always welcome to dance in any manner that suits you as long as it is with respect to your fellow dancers. The band normally plays one or two requests at the end of each set, so they may occasionally play other types of music such as Country and Polka.

Attire

The Yellowstone Ballroom Dance Club does not have a policy regarding the dress code. You can dress however you like for our dances and will always be welcomed.

Club Dues

Since we must pay for the great live band and the romantic ballroom, we must charge dance fees. This year's membership dues are $35 per person. Membership is optional, but with it you get a reduced per-dance rate as well as voting rights. In addition to the yearly membership fee, the cover charge for each dance is $15 for members, while guests should expect to pay $25 per dance. Students with a current student ID pay $10 per dance. Guests living at least one hundred miles from Billings pay $15 per dance with no membership required.

We are organized as a non-profit corporation. We are always eager for new ideas on how to improve our dances, so please send us your thoughts.
