Shag n' Lindy At Central Swing
Last month, we tried out a swing dance lesson and party at Slim Fitness...and it was a huge success! Due to requests, we're going to be bringing both, the rarely-seen-in-the-Bay-Area "Smooth Style" (Dean Collins style) Lindy Hop (the Jitterbug swing dancing style seen in 1940's Big Band-era musicals and 1950's Rock n' Roll Teen movies) and Collegiate Shag (a style of fast n' flashy Big Band-era swing dancing) for a mini-workshop, along with open dancing afterwards, at Slim Fitness' 800 square foot wood dance floor. For those who are sticking around till the very end, when we close at 11:00 p.m., we will all head out to the nearby Hong Kong cafe, "Venus Tam", afterwards, to buy some late night Chinese food and hang out after the dancing!

What we're about

If you're interested in regular lessons and dance venues for Lindy Hop, Balboa, or Collegiate Shag, whether you're new to the retro dance scene, or you're an experienced swinger ("dancer", that is!), and you live in the Fremont, Newark, Union City, or Hayward areas and are tired of having to drive all the way to San Francisco to get your dance fix...then this group is for you! We'll keep you updated on classes and venues taught and run by Mike Quebec at Fremont Adult and Continuing Education, The Joanne Brown Dance Studio, as well as Johnny Lee's and Shannon Warf's "Swingin' At The Rack" at The Saddle Rack in Fremont. In addition, any workshops and dances that are reasonably close by will be posted. Rockabilly shows where dancing is encouraged will also be posted.
