What's Happening at Next Gen?

 

Next Gen Dance
May 3, 2014

Please join The Next Generation Swing Dance Club at the Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville for our monthly club dance on Saturday, May 3 from 6 PM until late. We look forward to seeing you there.

Our DJ is Kelly Casanova. 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 Glenn and Sue Cravalho from 7 - 8 PM in the back room.

This month we will run Round IV of the "Luck of the Draw" contest series. Winners of the finals win tickets to Boogie by the Bay 2014

We recommend that you sign-up for the contest by 8:00. At that time, we start working to get an even number of leaders and followers. You may still sign-up between 8:00 and 8:15, but your name may be placed on a "waiting list" if the balance of leaders and followers is uneven at 8:00. Also, please remember that you must sign in yourself.

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact the Contest Team.

PRICE INCREASE EFFECTIVE JANUARY 4TH 

$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!
