Vintage Ballroom Dance Classes

Sunday, January 8, 2017 at 2 PM - 4 PM

Alameda Elks Lodge #1015

Alameda, California 94501

Starting on Sunday, January 8, PEERS will resume Sunday afternoon vintage ballroom dance classes at the Alameda Elks Lodge. Our dances are the social couple and set dances from 1800 through the 1940's.

The 2:00 - 3:00 pm class is newcomer-friendly; the 3:00 - 4:00 pm class is for experienced dancers and brave newcomers.

No partners needed. We usually have experienced ringers in both classes to help you learn the dances. Casual clothing or dance practice clothes are just fine, though some ladies do like to practice dancing their corsets! Dance shoes (with leather soles) that you can easily slide or glide in are recommended.
Instructors include Cathleen Myers, the Dance Director of PEERS and the Fezziwigs’ Dance Party at Dickens Fair; teaching assistants James Eric Myers, Cassandra Vlahos, and Christopher Mobley; and (when available) our favorite guest teachers Kat Repose and “Sky” Orun.

Note: All levels of dance experience are welcome but inexperienced dancers are strongly advised not to attempt the 3 pm class without taking the 2 pm Newcomer class that precedes it.

Cost: $10
