Next Gen Dance
February 4th, 2017
Please join The Next Generation Swing Dance Club at the Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville for our monthly club dance on Saturday, February 4th, 2017, from 6 PM until late. We look forward to seeing you there.
We have a another great DJ lineup two-fer for you – Glenn Cravalho and Martin Casillas! The DJ mix is primarily West Coast Swing, but also contains a few songs for other social and swing dances. Shanna Porcari-Nysen will teach our beginning WCS lesson from 7 to 8 PM in the back room.
February will see Round III of our 2017 Luck-of-the-Draw Jack & Jill Contest Series. Winners of the 7 rounds earn complimentary passes to Next Gen dances. 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!
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.
Boogie By The Bay 2016 was a Big Success!We hope everyone who attended Boogie had a blast! Stay tuned here next year for Boogie By The Bay 2017—things will just keep getting better and better!
