Here is a calendar you can print out and hang up, of all vintage dances and classes we know of...
see how many days you can fill with dancing if you try!

Everything listed here will feature waltz and/or polka.  If you hear of any other event that features a band and enough space to dance, please let us know and we will add it here.  If you would like you can join the email list, who are the first to receive the latest news like this:




Friday, June 23 = Vintage Invasion, the happiest dance ever.  Held at the Finnish Brotherhood Hall, 1970 Chestnut St @ University Ave,  Berkeley.  Doors open at 8 for a waltz lesson (no partner or experience needed), then from 9-12 DJs Donald and Persephone will play some polka, a little schottische, lots of waltzes, and whatever you are in the mood for.  Bringing a friend is optional but encouraged.  So is bringing snacks for the potluck table.  $10 / $6 students

Sunday, June 25 = the Gruber family band plays at Swiss Park, 5911 Mowry Ave, Newark.  This is a bar and restaurant with German food and a small but lively dance floor.  OOM-pa pa, OOM-pa pa !  4-8pm.  For more info 510-793-6272

Saturday, July 8 = P.E.E.R.S hosts the Alexander Hamilton Ball.  Held at the Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave, Alameda.  Doors open at 6:30 so you can change into your (optional) 1780s costume before attending the 7-8pm dance class.  The class is in set dances (done in groups, rather than pairs of people) from both England and the USA.  Then from 8-12 dance to Bangers and Mash, playing country dances, cotillions, and some early waltzes.  $20 advance (by July 1) / $25 door

Saturday, July 15 = East Bay Waltz.  Held at the Finnish Hall in Berkeley, with 2 dance classes held simultaneously from 7-9pm.  In one room there will be an intermediate waltz class, where Alan and Laura teach role swapping.  In the other room will be beginning waltz with Aarin.  From 9-12 there will be a plethora of DJs: Teah, LaToya, Talia, and Tenaya.  $12 for classes and dance, $8 after 9pm

Hey, did you notice that?  Instead of PEERS and EBW being first and second Saturday, they shifted to second and third, respectively.  Mark your calendar (or whatever virtual form of timekeeping you rely on these days :)

Sunday, July 16 = Castle House Vintage Dance, a montly ragtime party held at the Palo Alto Masonic Lodge, 461 Florence St.  The afternoon begins at 3:00 with a lesson in 1920s Foxtrot and Charleston, then dance to Paul Price's Society Orchestra from 4:00-6:30pm.  $10 / $8 students
