Please join The Next Generation Swing Dance Club at the Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville for our monthly club dance on Saturday, September 6 from 6 PM until late. We look forward to seeing you there.
Our DJ is Michelle Kinkaid. The DJ mix is primarily West Coast Swing, but also contains a few songs for other social and swing dances. Our beginning lesson is being offered by Joanna Meinl from 7 - 8 PM in the back room.
Last month (August 2nd) was the Finals of our 2014 "Luck of the Draw
" contest series. Winners took home tickets to Boogie by the Bay 2014
. (The Winners' Photo is at the top of the page!)
The contest this month is a Mixed Level NOVICE SPECIAL Strictly Swing. One or both partners must be a Novice (or lower) level dancer. Champions, we love you, but to avoid a "pro-am-looking" partnership, Champs are excluded this time.
This is not part of our Progressive Luck of the Draw series, but top 5 couples do still win a free pass to a Next Gen dance.
If you have any concerns or questions, please contact the Contest Team
