Dance Location and Policies
All regular dances are open to the public and are currently held at Dauntless Dance & Movement, 3221 Houston Ave, 77009.
Masks are welcomed but not required.
Please do not attend our dances smelling of alcohol, smoke, or fragrances.
To protect the floor and keep the space clean:
Dauntless requires that we protect their wood floor by wearing clean, low-heel shoes that will not scuff or damage the floor. Please do not wear street shoes on the dance floor. Bring clean shoes to dance in or dance in stocking feet.
You may bring water in closed containers—there's no water fountain. No other beverages are allowed.
You may bring snacks but they must be consumed outside.
The admission price for contra dances is $10 for members, $15 for non-members. ECD is $10 for members and non-members alike.
Cash, checks, credit cards, and digital wallets are currently accepted at the door. If paying cash, please bring correct change. No large bills accepted.
HATDS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations to HATDS are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
We use PayPal as our payment gateway but you don't need an account, just a credit card.
