Next Gen Dance
May 7th, 2016
Please join The Next Generation Swing Dance Club at the Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville for our monthly club dance on Saturday, May 7th, 2016, from 6 PM until late. We look forward to seeing you there.
Our DJ is Next Gen's very own Beth Bellamy! The DJ mix is primarily West Coast Swing, but also contains a few songs for other social and swing dances. Michelle Kinkaid will teach our beginning WCS lesson from 7 to 8 PM in the back room.
Our 2016 LOD Jack & Jill contest series resumes in May with Round IV. All round winners will compete in the August finals 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.
May is special all the way round! Our very own Kelly Casanova is on the Board of Directors of the California Swing Dance Hall of Fame (CSDHOF). she is donating her time and services to help raise money for an event in September in which Swing dancers throughout California will be inducted into the CSDHOF, and to help offset costs for the awards. Various members of the Northern California community have been nominated for induction, and nominees who attend the dance will be recognized by the Hall of Fame for their achievements.
