Dance Lesson, Wine Session

Please join us for a fun ballroom dance lesson -- featuring rumba and swing class -- starting at 7 PM which will be suitable for beginners, with all levels welcome.

After the class, people will have the option of continuing to dance from 8-10 PM or simply enjoying some wine, good conversation, and maybe even a few laughs.

While Pittsburgh has a vibrant cultural scene, including classical and contemporary dance, this is our chance to experience being a bit more than spectators while learning more about the art of dance.

With so many people in the Meetup, sometimes it can be challenge meeting/mingling, especially for relatively new members when attending other events, busy art galleries, and performances at large venues such as the Benedum. So perhaps a series of fun events might help to bring lots of people together from the Meetup, which could help with future introductions and finding other members at future events.

While there are other Meetup groups and organizations in the region that are specifically focused on dance, this event is also an opportunity for people to see if they might enjoy taking up dance in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Because some might be more comfortable bringing a friend for the dance lesson, guests are certainly welcome. So when you RSVP, please indicate if you'll bringing one or more friends.

This event costs only $10/person -- please bring cash at the door -- and is BYOB wine.  The $10 includes some complimentary snacks.

And to make the wine appreciation session more interesting, please feel free to bring either your favorite bottle of wine -- or something you've never tried before -- which costs less than $12.

For those that live close to the larger state stores, this might be a chance to check out one of the Chairmen's Selection wines.

It would be fantastic if this event included a variety of white and red wines, representing different countries/regions, etc. for the group to try. And if you don't drink, that is certainly OK as this event is about having fun, bringing people together, and learning a little more about ballroom dance.

    This Thursday's 'Dance Lesson, Wine Session' should be a lot of fun.

    Since many Meetup events are held at busy venues, this makes spotting people more difficult. Thus, it might be nice to schedule a few big events that would be more welcoming to those that haven't been to very many Meetups before. Unlike a restaurant where people spend time mostly talking with those seated at tables, the 'Dance Lesson, Wine Lesson' will be less formal so people should be able to meet many others while enjoying the group dance lesson and sharing wine afterwards. The event takes place from 7-10 PM. The $10 (please bring cash at the door) includes snacks in addition to the lesson. It is BYOwine so there should be plenty of interesting wines. Feel free to bring one of your favorite wines or perhaps something you've never tried before. If you're bringing a guest, maybe just pick a bottle. With the size of the group, we should end up with a really wide variety of wines!
