Good spots for dancing?

disco ball lights on ceiling CCKT emails:

I am wondering if there are any places for older people (late thirties early 40's) to go dancing?
Been almost 15 years since I have been in the bar "scene" but I have a few things I need to celebrate and only dancing will do!

This question has come up before, but it's been a few years and things change.

So, got a suggestion for KT? Please share!

Dancing is tough to come by around here. Locally well known cover bands like Start Making Sense, Pink Talking Fish, and assorted Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia tribute bands attract people who like to dance, but it's a "live band" setting and not a dance club setting.

Troy has "Polly" parties quarterly, which are EXCELLENT for dancing and very open minded.

If you like goth/industrial/really dark music and stomping. Fuze Box has "Exhuman" parties the first Friday of every month. It's a completely judgment-free environment with a mature (20-50) crowd, but it's definitely a goth-oriented event.

I recently moved from Chicago and found a nice group of Latin dancers in Albany -- salsa, bachata, merengue, chacha, etc. Ages vary, so you will fit right in. You can find Latin dancing every Wednesday at the Albany Railyard, and they also have a salsa party on Saturday once a month. Every Friday at the Newberry Music Hall in Saratoga Springs there is salsa dancing, and classes too. Berkshire Salsa in Pittsfield, MA has a salsa night once a month or so on Saturday's -- that's an hour away, but usually worth the drive. Troy has a Saturday a month (just not in the Summer) at the Troy Masonic Center.

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!

Bike share grew in both use and reach this year -- here's what CDTA's thinking about for next year
