    A wonderful dance center in Portland Maine offering ballroom and country dancing and lessons.

    Looks like you have a really nice studio judging by the pictures. Maine is one of my wife and I's favorite places to visit. We were in Portland in June of last year. We walked around the wharf area where all the restaurants and shops are located. We are planning on going again in June 2003. Maybe we will come by and visit!

    Did you have a chance to back last month and check the place out, DM? They had a very strong Country Western dancing program when I lived in the area a handful of years ago.

    Actually, I totally forgot about it. We were in Portland briefly, but most of our time was spent in the backwood country (Moosehead Lake and the White Mountains). I'm hoping to start spending Summers in Maine, and I'll need a place to dance. I'll remember your recommendation.

    There is great UCWDC Country/Swing event there in June. My wife and I usually attend! I think it's held at the Airport Holiday Inn - such a place???

    I love Portland. I hope I can remember this next year. I know my wife would love to have an excuse to go the Portland.

    It's a fun event. It's also great for a beginning competitor, as there are not a lot of competitors in each lever and/or age division.

    UCWDC events are great . . . pull them up on the 'Net! Their leadership is unequaled!

    Great find on your part! I dance at MapleWood about twice a week. As a matter of fact just came back from there tonight practicing a few steps. I was surprised to see a post here for this dance center.

    They really do pride themselves with the quality of the dance floor. It is raised slightly, sitting on about 44,000 rubber disks that absobs the shock of your step. Really nice to dance on!

    So next time you and your wife are in Portland, drop me a line and I can show you the place and introduce you to the crowd.
