Is it really 50 years since our beloved Dance Palace was founded? Yes, and what a ride it’s been! We are, of course, not letting this go by without a big community celebration.
We hope you enjoy our 50th anniversary page; watch for photos, posters, and emails; and listen to KWMR’s Swimming Upstream on occasional Wednesday mornings for glimpses into our past and plans for the future (see below for previous interviews).
We hope to see you as we EMBRACE the past, CELEBRATE the present, and DREAM the future. In the words of one of our old slogans – “Be There!!”
