Next Gen Dance
September 6, 2014

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.


$8 member / $13 non-member / $6 student Entrance fee includes the lesson and dance. These prices are in effect until 9 PM when the Allegro Ballroom admission prices take effect.

REMINDER: We are now checking membership cards at the door. We want to make dances more secure and ensure that current members receive the dance discount membership benefit. So make sure to bring your card with you to speed up the process at the register!

The address of the Allegro Ballroom is 5855 Christie Avenue, Emeryville, and is conveniently located off of I-80 next to the Powell Street exit (just past the IKEA and Trader Joe's). Coming from I-80, take the Powell Street exit headed East, turn left on Christie Avenue just past the Denny's, and turn left into the parking lot at the last entrance in front of the strip of buildings. The Allegro is to the back of the strip.

Amateur DJ Contest October 4, 2014

TNGSDC is hosting our second amateur DJ contest at the club dance on Saturday, October 4, 2014 from 8PM until 10PM.  We will play four different CDs created by randomly selected amateur DJs.  All dancers present will be allowed one vote to decide which DJ created the night's favorite set.  The winning DJ will be given the opportunity to be a guest DJ during the Sunday night club dance at Boogie by the Bay 2014 or they can choose to receive three dance passes to future club dances. Check out our flyer along with specific contest rules for all the details.  Submit your name by July 31, 2014 for consideration.   Good luck!
