We have had some wonderful times the pass two years, and as we move into our third year things keep looking better. More and more people are finding a home at Our Dance Place, meeting new friends and enjoying old friends. We are looking forward to expanding as we grow and looking at new areas to come to.

Our Dance Place is a non-profit organization created for people with disabilities.
We are a social entertainment Club for developmentally disabled persons and persons and people with disabilities who can get together with friends in a safe hassle-free social environment, dancing, dinning, talking and having fun with their friends, where they can be themselves, and meet new people, with a sense of belonging. Our Dance Place provides musical entertainment and support meeting the social needs of each member. We are exclusively promoting social welfare, and community integration to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community. Our Dance Place has continued to gain respect by all who attend and get to know that we really care about everyone who attends. We remember every month the many birthdays, provide birthday cake, a birthday card along with a gift card, because we truly care.
It was decided to start Our Dance Place after entertaining a Special Olympics Group at Friendship Village, such a great heart and mind experience. On February of 2016 the First Our Dance Place was started. Since then it has been a whirlwind of paper work and planning as we continue to grow with calls for “Our Dance Place” keep coming in from all over. The need is greater than we knew at the start. Most Group Homes for disability persons and parents with children with disabilities have a need for social activity. Everyone wants to be a part of something that offers a sense of belonging. For this reason, our tag line “Where Everyone Belongs”, we love what we do, and we are looking forward to what the future holds as we continue to grow and serve many others. January 2018 brought many changes both in management and operation realignment. We are teaching our members how to be an active member from greeting members to Djing an evening of entertainment. Making Our Dance Place even better. All Volunteers and people with disabilities help to make “Our Dance Place” better and remain viable with a nationwide operation coming into view. Still more fine tuning and planning continues.
Funding and corporate sponsorship is our biggest task facing Our Dance Place, but we continue slowly in growth, and the need is so great, planning each step forward.
