Barton Dance Theatre to host ‘Dancing with the Cougars’
Community members learn a dance from Barton Community College dance class students at an event at the end of the fall semester.

Barton Community College’s Barton Dance Theatre can make you a well-rounded dancer with its “Dancing with the Cougars” social dance series fundraiser, which features five two-hour workshops focused on learning popular dances. The sessions will be held at Studio 34, located on the southeast corner of the campus.

Each session is $10 and tickets for each session are purchased separately. Classes are capped at 30. Tickets can be purchased at

All sessions can be attended with or without a dance partner and all proceeds go to support the Barton Dance Theatre’s trip to the American College Dance Festival in March.
