          Central Florida Dance Locations

Orlando Chapter of USA Dance (a non-profit, all-volunteer organization) does not recommend any particular dance venue orclub. This is a list by genre of public dance venues in the Central Florida area that USA Dance is aware of, as of May 2016. (Does not include most nightclubs, because of space, smoke, and security issues.) Dance schedules often change, so call ahead to be sure.)
