Our DJ is Mike Pyle. 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 Kurt Senser from 7 - 8 PM in the back room.
The contest this month is a Strictly Swing with a Sophisticated Twist. One or both partners must be 35 or over and should not be your regular dance, teaching, competition or life partner. All levels are welcome and we encourage more experienced competitors to grab less experienced dancers and have some holiday fun..
This contest is not considered part of the Luck of the Draw series, which will begin in January. Finalists will win free passes to a Next Gen dance but not entry into the finals.
If you have any concerns or questions, please contact the Contest Team

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.
