The workshops on Saturday and Sunday will be held in the second floor ballroom of the Greek American Political Club in Central Square, Cambridge, a big open space with a silky wood floor. Central Square is one of the most vibrant areas of the city, and there’s lots to see, do, and eat!
Greek American Political Club
288 Green Street, 2nd floor
Near the corner of Green Street and Magazine Street. Look for the American and Greek flags out front, and find the door marked “288” (not the door marked “Members Only GAPC”).
Central Square stop on Red Line T
mbta.com for additional bus routes, info, etc.
One block from Mass Ave in Central Square. Convenient to Storrow Drive & Mass Pike (I-90).
We recommend parking in the Green Street Garage down the block from the Greek American Club. There are also reasonably-priced city lots on the opposite side of Mass Ave.
Friday evening dance
Boston Swing Central will be hosting the Friday night dance. They have lost their lease in 2014 but currently host dances at Q Ballroom, near Alewife T stop in Cambridge!
Q Ballroom (formerly Extreme Dancesport)
26 New Street, Suite 3
The building is white and has a reasonably obvious sign high on the wall reading “Q Ballroom” — look for the door to the right of the sign. Park in the lot onsite, or if it is full, look on nearby streets. Check the Boston Swing Central website for updated parking info and directions!
Saturday Night Shuffle
The Saturday night dance will be held at Ballroom in Boston in Allston. It’s a great space, with a slidey floor and reliable air-conditioning and a fun vibe.
Ballroom in Boston
300 Western Avenue, third floor
See their website for details. The building is surrounded by a parking lot, in all of which we may park during the dance. If it fills completely, there should be street parking nearby. If you’re relying on public transit, the venue is not very close to any T stop, so you’ll need to hop on a bus (66, 70/70a or 86 all stop nearby) or walk a bit. Or carpool with others heading to the dance!
Speakeasy Sunday night social
The venue for the super-fun social immediately following the workshops on Sunday afternoon will be Brass Union in Union Square! Brass Union has a sweet back room for dancing, plus a full bar and a tasty menu of small plates and meals! CALL AHEAD to reserve if you want to sit down and eat on arrival – if they don’t know how many are coming early enough, service can get very slow.
