From: Milind B.
Sent on: Wednesday, August 26, 2009 2:09 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Twin Cities Night Life Meetup Group!

What: Weekly Dance Group

When: September 10,[masked]:00 PM

Patricick's Cabaret
3010 Minnehaha Ave S
Minneapolis, MN 55406

Class Dates
** September 10, 17, and 24 in 2009 (Thursdays)
** October 8, 15, and 22 in 2009 (Thursdays)
** More dates to be scheduled in the future.

This dance group will allow you to get some exercise while meeting a lot of people and learning to dance.

In addition, we are going dancing as a group 2 to 4 times a month as a group. With these lessons, you will be ready to dance with us.
** Swing dancing at Wabasha Street Caves in St Paul on Thursdays: Tentative dates 10/1/2009 and 10/29/2009
** Salsa/Latin dancing: TBD
** Tango dancing: TBD
** Waltz, Polka, and other dancing at Oktoberfest events: TBD

This dance group is designed for singles, and we will be rotating partners frequently to make sure that
** Nobody is without a partner for long, and
** You get to dance with most everybody of opposite gender in the group.

(Couples and partnered people are welcome if you are willing to rotate partners with everybody in the group.)

This is subject to input from the group members, and subject to what dance outings are coming up. However, we will cover a variety of dances for Salsa/Latin dancing, Swing dancing, Tango dancing, and Oktoberfest dancing. In addition, the current plan is to have one hour each for two different dances every night.

We will spend time in the beginning with the new people and help them get caught up with the returning members, while the returning members are practicing to music. So, please join us even if you have never been part of this group.

The lessons go from 7:00 to 9:00, but we play some music for you to warm up and practice before 7:00.

You may bring a snack to share (not required) and your own beverage to drink during the lesson. Also, if you have a quiet fan, please bring it with you.

Feel free to pass this information onto your friends/family/co-workers. More the merrier.

We will meet at the Patrick's Cabaret at 3010 Minnehaha Avenue South at Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN 55407.
** There are parking lots on both sides (South and North) of Patrick's Cabaret, and you can park at any open spot marked Patrick's Cabaret.
** In addition, street parking is free after 6:00 p.m.
** There is a Police Station across the North parking lot. This means we will be safer in this area. However, be sure to follow all parking rules/signs.
** There are a number of bus lines running near this location, and the light rail is only two blocks away.
** The entrance to the studio is through the Red door at the back end of the South parking lot.

There is no alcohol allowed at the studio. However, many places for our dance outings have a full bar. Also, some of us like to go out for food/drinks at a nearby establishment after the lesson.

(If you know of any nice places nearby, please let us know. Hopefully, they serve food at least until 10:00 p.m. on Thursdays, have a full bar, and may be even have some happy hour type deals.)

Cost is only $10/night. (Please bring cash and exact change.) Any night we have more than 20 members, we will do a drawing for one person to get a free class.
