Next Gen Dance — June 3rd, 2017

Please join The Next Generation Swing Dance Club at the Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville for our next Club Dance on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017, from 6 PM until late. We look forward to seeing you there.

We have a another great DJ Two-Fer for you in June…and this is a Two-Fer to Move-Fer! The One-and-Only Kelly Casanova and the Also-One-and-Only Matt Laszczenski will split DJ duties. The music will be a mix primarily of West Coast Swing and a few songs for other social and swing dances. WnY's ever-popular Yenni Setiawan will teach our beginning WCS lesson from 7 to 8 PM in the back room. Be there!

May will see Round VII — the LAST prelim — of our 2017 Luck-of-the-Draw Jack & Jill Contest Series. The top five couples of the preliminary rounds earn complimentary passes to a Next Gen dance. They all return in July for the 2017 Finals where the top three couples will earn weekend passes to Boogie By The Bay 2017!

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! ALSO: Next Gen member discount prices are in effect at the door until 10:30 PM!
