HALLOWEENISH BARN DANCE!

Our next Barn Dance will be Saturday, October 30th

This dance is a last-minute addition.  We had an event that rescheduled to next year, so the weekend is free!

On top of that, Lisa is officially retiring October 31st, so the dance doubles as a semi-retirement celebration.

Sign up for email (bottom of this page) and we'll notify you if anything changes.

  

Quick Details:

* $7 per person.  Adults only.

* Halloween costume or casual dress.

* Doors open at 7 :30 and we dance until about midnight.

* Dance Lesson:  No lesson this time around

* Alcohol:  No bar, but you're welcome to bring your own soft alcohol.  (You are responsible!)

Many thanks to those of you who supported up when we were able to start holding dances again earlier this year.  It was so good to see friendly faces again!

Welcome Social Dancers & Dance Friends!

Whenever we can, we’re hosting Barn Dances at Heart of Rock Farm.  You’re invited to come out and dance with us.

Dances are most often held on the second Saturday of the month, although we sometimes have to reschedule because of other events. Lisa is a wedding DJ and Philip is an Officiant, so our Saturdays are not always our own.  Consequently most dances are held in the winter and early Spring, although we occasionally squeeze in a summer/fall dance.  

The doors open at 7 pm (unless there's no lesson and then we open at 7:30).  We we usually offer a beginning-level dance lesson at 7:30.  Most of the time Andy Hebert is our dance instructor.  

Come alone or bring a partner (or better yet, a group of friends).  We'll be playing a mixture of danceable classic rock, country, contemporary music, swing, and requests.  We cater to a variety of dance styles, including "shake your booty" and the high school sway...so don't worry if you don't know any particular partner dances or line dances.

The cost is $7 per person.  That helps cover the cost of the events.  

We hold these events for several reasons: 

  1.  We love to dance, and we like sharing that activity with like-minded friends; we know how to choose good dance music; and we like dancing on a good floor (which we have!). 
  2. We use the events as a fun way to raise funds to help with the many building projects we have going on.  We don’t make a lot of money at the dances, but every time we hold one we get to go out and buy another handful of folding chairs and maybe a new table.  It all adds up, and we’re grateful for the support. 

Dance Lessons:

We tend to gear our lessons toward beginners because we want to share the love of partner dancing with new people.  However, we love it when experienced dancers participate.  We’ve found that it’s really helpful for beginners to have experienced dancers in the lesson with them. 

Very often, our volunteer guest instructor is Andy Hebert.  We attended Ty's and Andy's lessons at the Milwaukie Elks for years, and we learned a lot from them.  We’re grateful that Andy is willing to teach for us, and I'm sure Ty is watching from above with approval.    

Andy typically starts out with a beginner-level lesson, and then kicks it up a notch at the end for the more-experienced dancers who are kind enough to jump in for the benefit of the beginners.

Dance Floor

Our floating dance floor is one of the largest in the region:  about 1600 square feet.   There's lots of room, so bring a friend!  Remember:  line dancers and stationary dancers in the middle, and traveling couples to the outside (counter clockwise).  We value and appreciate good dance floor etiquette!

Refreshments:

We don't offer bar service but you're welcome to BYO beverage (soft alcohol only, please).  Please drink responsibly (which is normally the case with dancers, anyway).

There is bottled water and pop available for $1.  Help yourself from the 'fridge and drop a dollar in the cash box.  Water is also available from the dispenser near the bar.  If it's cold out, we often offer coffee as well.

We always have snacks on hand, and you're welcome to bring something to contribute to the snack table if you like.

We've occasionally had Meet-Up groups ask if it's okay to bring pizza or take-out for their group.  Go for it!  All we ask is that you clean up after yourselves. 

Parking

If it's not raining heavily, park in the field across the driveway.  If it's a muddy day and the gravel lot is full, remember that you can park alongside the gravel roads leading in and out of the property and there’s additional parking behind the Onion Barn. Update:  Please don't park next to the bathroom trailer as it makes it more difficult for guests to access the facilities.

Dress Code:

Be comfortable!  If the ladies are wearing high heels, drop them off at the door before you find your parking space.  The lot is pretty gravely. 

Call us if you have any questions or need directions.

The address is Heart of Rock Farm, 19270 SW Pacific Hwy, Sherwood, OR 97140.  We put lighted signs out on dance night.  Phone or text is (503) 309-0318. 

And, as always, it's okay to invite friends!  See you on the dance floor.
