Carolina Dance Club Overview

Founded in 1999, the Carolina Dance Club (CDC) under the stewardship of Wesley Boz and Debbie Ramsey have promoted partner dancing in the Triangle, NC area. 

Our club began 20 years ago hosting a monthly swing dance with 30 to 40 passionate, devoted dancers. Today our club numbers over 225+ members and is celebrating 17 years of weekly Sunday night swing dancing and afternoon salsa and ballroom dancing at the beautiful Raleigh Elks Lodge. 

On any given Sunday afternoon-evening, one hundred to one hundred and fifty dancers of all ages and walks of life will be participating in lessons and social dancing. All dance activities are open to the general public and are provided in a smoke free environment. No experience or partner is necessary to participate. Our dances are very welcoming, inclusive and a great way to meet new friends.
