To help you get the most enjoyment out of dancing at Floating on a Melody Ballroom, we have put together this list of Frequently Asked Questions.


What’s the dress code?

Dress to impress! Please no jeans, sweats or gym shoes.  We request that only dance shoes be worn on the dance floor.


What is the profile of the dancers who come to dance?

Our dancers range in age from early 20's to 70+.  Dancing brings together people of all ages and backgrounds who have one thing in common:  they love to dance!  Our dancers are very welcoming to new attendees.


Is there parking nearby?

Free street parking is available on Ogden Avenue and nearby side streets.  There is also a city parking lot around the corner on Amelia Avenue.

My partner and I would like to get lunch or dinner before the dance.  Can you recommend a nearby restaurant?

We sure can!

  • Pico's Tacos, next door to the Ballroom, has great tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and dinner entrees.  Luis and Veronica are the owners and we eat at their restaurant all the time.  Tell them we sent you.
  • P.J. Klem's, one block south, is a sit-down restaurant with reasonably priced meals. They also sell awesome homemade fudge in several flavors. The owner Tulla is a friend of ours and is very welcoming.  Let her know we sent you.
  • Pop's, also one block south, offers Italian beef, hamburgers, hot dogs and a variety of soups and salads.
  • Waterworks Tavern, located one block north, has great pizza.
