continued “The country dance community is very active. We have mainly line dancing here,” Apicella said. “But I would entertain having any type of dancing here. I’m going to have a polka hop with a live band in December.”
Providing a club-like atmosphere, the dancehall has a bar with tables, something Apicella said he hasn’t seen in the Capital District.
“(It’s) a place where people can come and socialize,” Apicella said.
Apicella said he usually has anywhere from 60 to 100 come out for each dance, and usually with the over-40 crowd. Although her husband said the Capital District dance community “ebbs and flows,” Morroni feels it is on an upswing.
“This venue here is going to make a difference for a lot of people,” she said. “I think a venue like this which is very comfortable, nice, beautiful floor, great music … I’m really hoping this will bring a lot of people out.”
