Come Out Dancing with Us!
I organize 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!
January Dance Night Out...in February!
Viennese Waltz & more at East Bay Waltz
Saturday February 8, 2020 | 7pm–12am
Come dancing with us at East Bay Waltz*. This is a fun and friendly venue that welcomes people of all ages, genders and sexual orientations. Plenty of slow and fast Waltzes* will be played, as well as several Swing, Salsa, Cha Cha's and more.
If you wonder why our "January" Dance Night will be in February, it's because East Bay Waltz's January dance happens after only 1 Viennese Waltz class with me at the YMCA. Going in February means you'll have a full 4 weeks of class under your belts!
* Note: Cross-Step (slow) and Rotary (fast) are the main styles of Waltz taught/danced at this venue. However, the music is the same as for the ballroom Waltz (slow) and Viennese Waltz (fast) that I teach in my classes.
