Formed in 2007, The Norwich Dance Club is a diverse community group that gathers in downtown Norwich every Friday to learn, practice and enjoy the art of ballroom dance. About the anniversary celebration, group co-founder Martha Ryan said; “This amazing journey was possible because of the generosity and trust from the Arnell family.” Bob Arnell provided the use of their ballroom and committed to supporting the Norwich Dance Club with live music every month with his 12 piece Big Band – The Chenangoans. “The many hours of laughter we had are priceless. None of us will go on to dancing competitions but all of us have enjoyed a special place to meet with friends every Friday and to dance,” added Ryan.
According to Ryan, The Norwich Dance Club will continue to
expand their community support mission and intends to expand their involvement
in community events. The organization is actively seeking
opportunities to dance and teach others the beautiful art of ballroom
dance. Organizations interested on
hosting a dance demonstration are encouraged to contact the Norwich Dance
