Next Gen Dance
June 4th, 2016
Please join The Next Generation Swing Dance Club at the Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville for our monthly club dance on Saturday, June 4th, 2016, from 6 PM until late. We look forward to seeing you there.
Our DJ is another two-fer—Rupert Schroeder and Matt Leszczenski The DJ mix is primarily West Coast Swing, but also contains a few songs for other social and swing dances. Jason and Yvonne Wayne will teach our beginning WCS lesson from 7 to 8 PM in the back room.
Our 2016 LOD Jack & Jill contest series continues in June with Round V. All round winners will compete in the finals at our October Club Dance (please note: this is a change from our original schedule for finals in August) for weekend passes to Boogie By The Bay 2016. You must register for the contest in person, so please arrive and sign in no later than 8 PM.
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.
Kelly CasanovaThank you so very much to everyone who came and participated in Kelly Casanova's fundraiser for the California Swing Dance Hall of Fame (CSDHOF) on Saturday, May 7th, right before our regular Club Dance. The event raised over $700 to help defray costs for the CSDHOF awards event later this year.
