UNL FACULTY DANCE CLUB

Offers fine dining, conversation, and dancing to a live band. Between September and April, dances are held one Saturday each month at the East Student Union. Optional dinner starts at 6:30 PM, dancing at 7:30 to 10:00 PM. Membership is $100 a couple per year or $60 a couple per semester. Members are expected to help plan and prepare for one of the eight dances each year. Novice members are welcome and first-time guests may attend one dance at no charge. Non-members who have attended before pay $20/couple per dance. Non-members who arrive while a band is playing are asked to wait at the door until there is a break between sets so that our treasurers also may enjoy the dance. Reservations are required. Dinners are a flat rate, usually ranging from $16 to $20 per person or $32 to $40 per couple. Dance themes and menus usually are announced by e-mail about ten days prior to a dance. Late cancellations are discouraged (our club is charged for the meals whether or not those who order them attend). Donations to the club are appreciated and help us engage high quality bands.

For more information, please write to the Faculty Dance Club
or contact club presidents Janice Lawrence & Gregg Wright.

Historic Perspective:

In 1914 Dr. Winette Orr, a surgeon at an orthopedic hospital, and his wife invited friends to dancing parties at the hospital. In 1916 the group selected Faculty Dance Club as its name, and became a formal organization in 1923-24 with the election of a president. In 1977 membership was expanded to include Doane College, Southeast Community College, Lincoln Public Schools, and Nebraska Wesleyan University.

In the early years, dances were held in a variety of locations. The old NU library (Architecture Hall) often was used. Other popular places included Roseland Ballroom (11th & N Streets), the Shrine Club (Hillcrest), the old Lincoln Hotel (Holiday Inn), and the original Cornhusker Hotel. The Activities Building on East Campus and the Nebraska Student Union also were used. Dances now are held almost exclusively in the East Union, although in recent years the City Campus Union and the Hillcrest Country Club also were occasional venues. Live bands continue to be a trademark at the Club's eight dances each year. Until the mid-1940s, tuxedos were occasionally the dress for a dance. Costume parties also were popular during the Club's first fifty years. Except for the December holiday dance, today's attire is less formal.

 

The Faculty Dance Club is an Interest Group
of the University of Nebraska - Lincoln Women's Club
(previously known as the Faculty Women's Club).
