Patch Minute: Salsa, Tango, Ballroom Dancing for All Ages

Dust off your dancing shoes and boogie the night away on a dance floor built in 1934! That and more in this week's Patch Minute!


This week, we're featuring a series of dance lessons at the Historic Gulfport Casino Ballroom at 5500 Shore Blvd. in Gulfport. The original dance floor, built in 1934, is still used today! Come out any Tuesday, Wednesday or Sunday evening and you can grab a drink at the cash bar and make new friends for just $7 per person. That's right, every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. you can learn the Argentine Tango, on Wednesdays - it's Swing Dancing and on Sunday nights you can party with a live band. All ages are welcome and no partners are needed!
