Our Next Dance: September 10, 2016

DC Rawhides is non-profit that works to bring country western dance opportunities to the local DC-area. Same-sex country western dancing is a long-standing tradition in the DC area. The DC Rawhides are committed to ensuring that the tradition lives on. Our goal is to promote country western dancing among the LGBT community by teaching and holding dances.

We currently run Town & Country every other Saturday evening from 6:30-10:50pm at Town Danceboutique in NW DC (corner of 8th and U St.)
