Monterey Country Dance Community (MCDC) is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization. (Only the musicians, callers and sound technicians get paid!)  We are dedicated to keeping traditional live music and dance thriving on the Monterey Peninsula.  We bring in many outstanding out-of-town bands, teachers and callers, while at the same time supporting local callers and musicians. 

To keep magical moments of music and dance happening regularly on the Monterey Peninsula, we depend on our members.  Your sponsorship fees help us to cover the costs of bringing you great musicians and callers, workshops and special events, as well as other necessities like insurance and hall rentals.
