Come Out Dancing with Us!

I organize semi-regular “Dance Nights Out” at beginner-friendly venues in the East Bay. Dance Nights Out are a great opportunity to dip your toes into “real world” dancing with the safety of myself and fellow students by your side.

The dance style and venue varies (usually corresponding with the dance I'm teaching in my Level 2 group class that month).

We usually go places where there is a beginning drop-in lesson before the dancing begins. This way there's no experience necessary, and you can bring friends and family along for a fun evening out!

June/July Dance Night Out

Bachata lesson and dance

Bachata Saturday Social

Saturday July 13, 2019 | 8pm – 2am

Come practice your Bachata (as well as Salsa)! 

Due to how June dates fall, both local monthly Bachata dances occur before or the day after our first Bachata Level 2 class. So I'm opting for waiting until July when you have more experience and confidence to go out Bachata dancing.

This is a fun, casual event that primarily plays Bachata but throws in an occasional Salsa or Kizomba. Hope you can make it!

Location: The Beat, 2560 9th St, Suite 119, Berkeley, CA

Mastering triple steps and heel-toe footwork & partnering
9-10pm: Mastering Salsa On 2 fundamentals & partnering
10am-2am: Bachata & Salsa Party

I had a really nice time out dancing with everyone. And thank you, Brandee, for dancing the Foxtrot with me—it was good 'real world' experience and helped with my confidence.
