Ballroom Dancing Anyone?! The Cornell Club of Washington is hosting a group of interested graduates and professionals from several universities for some Swing dancing fun at Glen Echo Park, 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD. We will meet at 8PM. The ballroom is basically unheated, but with 400-500 people at the dance, it will warm up. A water bottle is useful if you don't want to go outside for water. The format is an hour of "instruction" followed by the dance. People of all ages, professions, and levels of ability, usually attend these events, (average age 30-35) and the atmosphere is fairly casual and informal. Bring a friend or a partner if you wish; but it is not required. Admission is $8.00 cash at the door. For more information and rides to the park contact the Cornell Club of Washington at (202)466-2208 or Chris Kelly @ (202)588-0378 or e-mail: QMNR20A@prodigy.com
