Top 5 Places To Country Line Dance In The Albany Area
Country Line Dancing is a favorite past time of many GNA listeners. There are many venues that offer dancing to all styles of music in the Albany area, but this list focuses on places that play all Country Music for your 'Boot Scootin'' pleasure.
City Sports Grille at Spare Time
Located within the Spare Time Bowling Center in Clifton Park, the City Sports Grille is one of the coziest venues to 'cut footloose.' A delicious menu, friendly staff and dozens of televisions make this bar one of our favorite stops every week. If the dance floor was a bit bigger, this could be turned into one of the best country dance clubs in the Northeast. Check out Country Night every Tuesday in the fall and winter and select Saturdays.
Joe's East West
If you take a little road trip from Albany to New Paltz, New York, you will find Joe's East West. This nightclub features several 'Country' nights every week. The rustic look of the building will make you feel like you're dancing in the Wild West. Mostly packed with local college kids, the floor is always filled with classics like 'Bartender's Stomp,' 'Tush Push' and '16 Step.' If Joe's continues to 'keep it Country,' we're sure they will continue to grow as one of the biggest and best country dance clubs in the nation.
Ballroom on Sunset
The Ballroom on Sunset, located at 13 Sunset Drive in Latham, New York, is a line dancer's dream come true! This place was built for dancing and boasts a gigantic floating wooden dance floor. If you're looking for 'country' line dancing, check the schedule before you head out, as you could end up in a zumba class or a ballroom dance. As of now, Tuesday is Country Night, but any style of dancing and any style of music is better on this dance floor any day of the week.
Shenendehowa Adult Community Center
Located in the Clifton Common in Clifton Park, the Shenendehowa Adult Community Center hosts line dancing to Country Music on Monday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. A mixed crowd of all ages, from 10-90, this is a comfortable place to kick up your heels. You're guaranteed to get a great mix of Country music, old and new. This is also the perfect venue to learn beginner steps with several beginner line dance programs offered throughout the year.
This multi-million dollar night club is located within Saratoga Casino and Raceway. With a state of the art sound system, a high-tech light show and giant video screen, Vapor ranks as one of our favorite venues to host any event.

Top it off with great giveaways, no cover charge, and an all-country format on select Thursdays, and you've got the Northeast version of the Wildhorse Saloon. Plus, with Country Karaoke and some regular club dancing to Country Music, everyone is made to feel welcome, no matter how many line dances you may or may not know.
