YMCA Disco Classes – 1978 –
with the popularity of the disco music scene the YMCA decided to have a disco dance class. The dance class was so popular they had to add a second class. The classes were on Monday evenings at 7:30 and 9:00. Even with the second class being added there were still 76 people on the waiting list to join the classes. The instructor was lived on the Minot Air Force Base and had attended the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Chicago. She would be teaching disco dances including the Latin Hustle, Freak and Swing. The participants joined for a variety of reasons but most were just curious about Disco.
