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, January 26 = Vintage Invasion, which makes us happy. Held at the Finnish Brotherhood Hall, 1970 Chestnut St @University Ave, Berkeley.  8pm is a waltz lesson with Persephone,  9pm-midnight is our dance party, with DJs Diane and Remington mixing lots of dances in between a steady stream of waltzes.  Bring a friend if you like, and a potluck snack to share. $10 for the evening, $6 for students with ID.

Friday, January 26  = The Bon-Bon ball, a casual dance to practice and get ready for Stanford's Viennese Ball.  Held in Roble gym on the Stanford campus.  Doors open at 7pm for a lesson in Bohemian National Polka, followed by DJ dancing 9-12.  I could not find a price for this year but it's usually cheap.

Saturday, January 27  = B.A.E.R.S. presents their annual Cyprians Ball, where courtesans abound.  Held at the Masonic Lodge, 2312 Alameda Ave, Alameda.  Dance to the Divertimento Orchestra from 8:30-11pm, doing set dances from the Jane Austen era, with waltzes in between.  Dances will be taught and called by Alan Winston, and potluck refreshments served. Costumes circa 1810 admired but not required.  $20 advance / $25 door

Saturday, February 3 = P.E.E.R.S. presents the Outlander Ball, set in the world of the TV show. Held at the Alameda Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave.  Dance lessons at 7pm will be followed with dancing to Bangers and Mash from 8-12, playing mostly country dances (from a mix of countries) with a few waltzes in between.  Set dances will be taught and called as usual, so no experience necessary.  Costumes (circa 1743 and/or Scottish) admired but not required.  $20 advance (by Jan 27) $25 door

Friday, Feburary 9 = Stanford hosts their annual Viennese Ball.  Held at the Hyatt hotel, 1333 Bayshore Highway, Burlingame, CA 94010.   The evening begins at 8:30 with opening ceremony performances, followed by dancing until 2am.  Usually at past balls they have had two bands, one for waltz and one for swing; unfortunately none of their web sites have posted the names of bands or when they are playing.  :(  Tickets are sold on campus during lunch, prices range from $45 earlybird for Stanford students, up to $90 for non-Stanford folks.

Saturday, February 10 = East Bay Waltz, held at the Finnish Brotherhood Hall, 1970 Chestnut St @University Ave, Berkeley.  From 7-9pm there will be a beginning class in cross-step waltz taught by Bob and Alina, while in the other Caroline and Mirnada teach West Coast Swing for intermediate.  9-12 is the dance party with DJs LaToya and Alan, playing exclusively music by black artists, in honor of Black History Month.   $12 for class and dance, $8 after 9pm.
