Let's go back to the era of Swing Dance, flappers, speakeasies and zoot suits.

 

No need to RSVP "No".

The Swing Dance Era began in the 1920s and went on through into the 1950's. In the 1980's it made a big come-back and is now a celebrated and studied form of dance with competitions around the world.

The venue features music and dance styles from the fabulous Swing Era.  You can Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Waltz, Foxtrot, or freestyle!

You will find the most talented, professional musicians from all over the world with charts and arrangements that are impeccable and true to the genre.

There is a beginner dance lesson is at 9pm taught by a professional instructor and usually lasts a half hour.  The band plays from 9:30pm to 1:00am

There is a minimal music charge for entertainment, which includes the Dance Lesson, the Swing DJ, the Live Band and Dancing.  Dinner and Drinks are separate.

The music charge is just $15 on Fridays.

We will have dinner first, then have the dance lesson and stay to watch the band and practice what we learned in the dance lesson!


If you either do not wish to join us for dinner, or if you are on the waiting list and not able to get an "attending" spot for dinner, you can still join us AFTER dinner for the dancing part of the evening.  This will begin at 9 p.m.  If you are only coming for the dancing, please indicate that.  You will be moved to a "waiting" position, so someone else can take one of the "attending" positions for the dinner.  This does not mean that you are not able to come, just that you won't be joining us for dinner!

 

Dinner will be a la carte.  You will pay for what you eat and drink and use the rule of 1.3 (this means you take the cost of your food and drinks prior to taxes/tip being added and multiply by 1.3.  This will allow you to cover taxes and a 20% tip.  If you want to leave less than a 20% tip, please do not join us for dinner.)

    So, it looks like it will be Mary, Kimberly, Stan, Tom, Wendy, Jeff and me for dinner. And Chris B., Carol, George, Alpha, Christina, Fata and Ida joining us for dancing after. I will call on Wednesday to make a reservation for dinner, so please reconfirm by then if you are coming for dinner. Thanks!

      George, I'll look in my closet to see if I've got an extra right foot you could borrow. But it will be a boys size 3. Lol!

    For those that haven't already, please make sure you let me know if you are coming for dinner and dancing, or for just the dancing. Thanks!

      Lisa, do you still have room to include just me for dinner + dancing? My +1 won't be able to make it.

      Sure Stan. :-) I will touch base with everyone next week to see who is coming to dinner.

      June 20, 2013

  • Stan

    Lisa, can I bring a friend as a +1? I think that she is in the process of joining the group too so it may be a moot point. Actually, I think that both of us want to do just dancing at 9pm.

      Hi Stan. I've changed the RSVP settings. You can add your plus one now. :-)

      May 28, 2013

    • Tom R.

      I may also have a plus one for the food, at least, (they're not (yet) part of the group though)

    A little angel told me there'll be b-day candles, so I've changed my mind and want to join you for dinner :)

      Is that your way of saying you want me to bring you back a lil' something from Colombia?...Well as long as you don't ask for a certain "package" then we are good....lol...jk, JK!!! :) ...Yes Lisa, will do!!! Btw, early HB!!

      May 28, 2013

    Can't wait! Haven't done swing in so long! I celebrated last New Year's Eve here and the band was great :-). Will most likely just come for the dancing at 9pm though.

      Cool. As we get closer, I'll confirm again to see who is going to have dinner and who is going to just dance. I will then move people around on the "attending"/"­waiting" if needed.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
