Hey PDO!  I need your help with an idea that I have.  I travel a lot for work, so I don't usually know where I'm going to end up six months or a year from any point in time.  One thing that I do know is that no matter where I go, I can usually find a place to dance, but it can be really challenging to find a comprehensive list, so there is definitely some trial and error involved.

So, where do you take lessons or teach?  What studios are in your area?  What instructors are around and what styles do they teach?

(I'll start another thread for social dancing venues)

[This topic is sort of a test - Madira's idea (Smiley)was to start a board where we could list dance places for different regions.  If this takes off we'll do exactly that and eventually perhaps we could make one of the best dance place resources on the web.]

In Columbus Ohio, my studio usually has open to the public dancing from 9 - 10:30 p.m. every Friday. Best to call and verify. Sometimes not held if another event held same weekend (e.g. showcase, comp, special party).

Studio will be open week of OSB, but no Friday party. Studio is only a couple miles west of OSB venue in suburb of Grandview. Right next to Drexel theater on Grandview avenue. Besides studio, a cool area to visit. Lots of restaurants and shops.
