We will be accepting admission at the door.  Please bring a copy of your updated vaccination card; this must include at least one booster vaccine. (A bivalent booster is NOT required, sorry for any confusion about that.)

FSGW is thrilled to return to the Woman’s Club of Chevy Chase for another fantastic New Year’s celebration. We plan a full evening of fun dances to amazing musicians.  Stay tuned for the fanciest NYE in the Metro area. 

Doors open at 7:15, and the Grand March starts at 8. There will be a toast at midnight, followed by Auld Lang Syne, then some final dancing.

Caller: Louise Siddons

Band: OMG 2.0 (Alexander Mitchell, Paul Oorts, Ralph Gordon)

Come join us for the end-of-year festivities!

Details and updates can be found on the New Year's Eve Contra Dance Ball page.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a snack to share! 

While this is a Tier 1 event for the dancing portion, there will be food and drink, so we are encouraging attendees to take a PCR test within the 72 hours before the event, and requiring a rapid test the same day (honor system). Please do not come if you are feeling sick.


FSGW Tier 1 event: 

  • Masks (N95 / KN94 or equivalent) are required at all times *
  • All participants must be vaccinated with at least one booster
  • Pre-registration required
  • If you have not checked in at a previous FND/FSGW dance, your vaccination status will be checked at the door, please bring your card or a digital photo of your card and a government issued photo ID

*For this event, masks will be required while on the dance floor. Eating will not be allowed on the dance floor.
