Let's Dance!

The Oakland County Traditional Dance Society is a Southeastern Michigan organization dedicated to traditional music and dance. We hold monthly contra dances at the First United Methodist Church in Troy, Michigan. We also have monthly musical jam sessions just before the dance.

Important Notice

The OCTDS Board has decided, as a continuing responsibility to the community and in the best interest of everyone's health, to cancel the dances scheduled for May, June, July to avoid any possibility of Corona virus (COVID-19) contagion and further help contain the pandemic.

The OCTDS board will continue to monitor the situation here in Michigan and decide at a later time on the ability to return in August with our special event “August Festival Day”


Next dance: August 22 - Special August Day Festival Dance weekend with music by The Johns and calls by Darlene Underwood. Advanced Dance from 2:30 to 5:30, Potluck Dinner from 5:30 to 7, Lessons for beginners at 7, Regular Dance at 7:30. This event is supported in part by the Outreach Fund of the Country Dance and Song Society
