You’re invited! Please join us for our first New Year’s Eve Dance at D2 Dance Studio. Quick link to buy tickets

A casual, affordable and intimate New Year’s Eve Dance

This year we’re keeping it simple and focusing on the dancing, celebrating the new year with our friends and our dance community, and making the night affordable for everyone. Just $20 for advance tickets, and $25 on the night (if there are any tickets left).

We’re limiting the capacity to 150 people so we’ll have a full house but with enough room for dancing.

The lower ticket price means we won’t be providing a full appetizer buffet this year, just a few sweet treats, but we will have a limited bar and the traditional complimentary toast of champagne at midnight.

And in order to be eco-friendly and reduce our garbage and plastic footprint, we’re not providing noisemakers for the countdown at midnight – please use your voice to cheer in the new year!

Music mix: DJ Stephen playing Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba

The best New Year’s Eve plans are made in advance rather than at the last minute! Where will you be at midnight? Join your friends at D2 Dance Studio on New Year’s Eve for an evening of dancing to ring in the new year.
