Chateau Nightclub
3439 Benning Rd, NE, Washington, DC 20019

The Chateau is the place to go hand dancing in the District (or, really, anywhere). Thursday through Sunday, this club is filled with oldies DJs and a middle-aged clientele that definitely knows how to dance. Many of the people here are regulars who also attend dance classes. This is the best place to enjoy DC's own version of swing dancing.

Moreover, Ms. Wheelchair District of Columbia competes nationally with other state titleholders in the annual Ms. Wheelchair America Pageant.
