Music and Dancing at Mizell
Every Friday at Mizell

Where else can you dance to live music without having to stay up late at night? At Mizell, we want to make sure you can remain active with fun programs during the summer and not give up your favorite activities like dancing . . . or just listening to live music by professional musicians. So get up, get out to Mizell, and be sure to bring your dancing shoes! Music is free for members and $5.00 for non-members.
