If you’re looking for country music, line dancing and all the Garth Brooks references you can handle, put on your cowboy boots and head to The Mishnock Barn in West Greenwich. It’s under the radar unless you’re one of the few Southern-leaning Rhode Islanders who knows a lariat from their Ariats. The state’s epicenter for country music, the Barn has three dance floors and hosts massive line dancing parties most nights of the week. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights are Beginners Nights: lessons start at 7:30pm and dancing goes until 11pm. The pros come out on Friday and Saturday nights, but there are still 8pm lessons, and the dancing goes until midnight. Mishnock Barn hosts live music the first Thursday of the month - so get to stepping.
If, like Miss Eliza Doolittle, you could have danced all night, then Ballroom Dancing at The Towers is for you. Every Wednesday night, the Narragansett Towers hosts ballroom dancing lessons. Classes start at 6pm with the West Coast Swing Flash Mob, then move on to Hustle and Rumba before the real fun starts at 8pm: a lesson in the dramatic, romantic Argentine Tango. For the rest of the night after these lessons, it’s open dancing and tango practice. Go there with your S.O. for a different kind of date night, or head to the Towers solo - there’s no partner required.
