What we're about

Welcome to our Dance Family!

Are you looking for a new activity where you can combine exercise with meeting new people? Try Swing dancing!

The San Diego Dancers Meetup offers you the opportunity to meet new people--both singles and married couples--who share the same interest and passion for dancing--and have a desire to learn how to dance. We are a group of active individuals who love dancing, and most of all, HAVING FUN!!! All ability levels are welcome to our events. No partner needed!

We provide "friendly" dance venues where you can dance to a variety of music ranging from West Coast Swing to East Coast Swing to Night Club to Latin and Ballroom.

Our commitment is to help create a "safe" atmosphere that encourages dancers--both singles and married couples--to put time, energy, and love into their Swing, Night Club, Latin and Ballroom dancing. Besides our scheduled dances, we also provide resources for current dance classes for those who want to learn how to do swing dance or want to improve their dancing skills. We are also honored to have Mary Manzella on board as our "official" Dance Director. As a National Swing Dance Champion and past judge at National Swing Dance competitions, she brings a wealth of dancing knowledge to our group.

So until we meet, "Dance with Rhythm...Dance with Style!"

OUR CORE VALUES are INCLUSIVENESS, DIVERSITY & RESPECT. They are our guiding principles which we embrace the diversity of our members and their talents and ideas. We actively strive and sustain an environment of acceptance and foster respect among all of our members regardless of background, race, gender, values, sexual orientation & religion.

DANCE COUNTRY with the JIM ALLEN Band

Escondido Elks Lodge

Hello Dancers,

Over the past few years The Jim Allen Band (a.k.a. Lightning Train) has garnered the reputation as one of southern California's finest Americana and Classic Country bands. Taking it's influences from legendary American musical icons such as Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Ray Price, The Byrds, Gram Parsons and many other old and new traditionalists, The Jim Allen Band continues the legacy of Americana music that can get your honky tonk feet dancing and then (in the words of Hank Williams) "melt your cold, cold heart."

Then at 7:30 PM the lights are turned down for some boot stompin' fun on the dance floor with one of Southern California's hottest Country bands, the JIM ALLEN Band.
