The National Park Service George Washington Memorial Parkway announces new winter hours of operation
Starting Saturday, December 14, 2013 Glen Echo Park and Clara Barton National Historic Site will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Glen Echo Park Partnerships for Arts and Culture will still operate 7-days a week.
All social dances are open to the public, for all ages, with no prior experience or partner required. All dances offer an introductory lessen before the dance begins and most include live music. Tickets are $5 - $20, depending on the dance, and are sold at the door. Tickets generally cannot be purchased in advance. Alcohol is prohibited on park grounds and smoking is prohibited in all buildings. Dress is casual, and layers are recommended, because the dance halls (with the exception of the Ballroom Annex) are neither heated nor air-conditioned.
