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.
