Next Gen Dance
July 4th 2015
Please join The Next Generation Swing Dance Club at the Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville for our monthly club dance on Saturday, July 4th from 6 PM until late. We look forward to seeing you there.
Our DJs are Pat Eodice and John Lindo. 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 Kara Frenzel from 7 - 8 PM in the back room.
This month we will run Round VI of the "Luck of the Draw" contest series. Winners of the contest series finals win tickets to Boogie by the Bay 2015.
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.
