Bay Area Dancing for Singles and Couples
The "Dancing with the Stars" series has sprouted new and enduring interest in partnered social dancing. For more information about dancing in general, as well as local dance bands and venues (many of which offer classes), be sure to check out the info and links below.
If you're new to partnered social dancing, you should know that the emphasis is on "social." It doesn't matter if you're single, married, or otherwise coupled, or what your gender orientation of sexual identification is. People invite other people to dance for 3 minutes of amicable connection on the dance floor. It's all about having fun while getting exercise. While some people prefer to dance only with the person who accompanied them to the dance, they are in the minority. Every accomplished social dancer will agree that the best dancers are those who dance with multiple partners, which will be evident once you have clocked some hours on the dance floor. The social dancers' code is to be polite and kind, and welcoming of new and beginning dancers, or those who may not be as skillful as they are, and to remember that everyone was a beginner at one time.
Since dancing is a sport as well as a social activity, safety and etiquette are paramount to assure a good time at a dance and in class. The best dance teachers will emphasize these areas equally with steps, skill and technique.
If you are interested in lessons, check out the Info About the Dance Venues link below, and also note that many of the dance events posted here are preceded by dance lessons. If you like the teacher, inquire about where s/he teaches. Ask other dancers for recommendations about teachers and lessons.
See you on the dance floor!
FYI/please note -- when someone posts a recurring event on Meetup, Meetup automatically assigns that person (a) as host for the event; and (b) as intending to go. This may not be the case for the person who posted the event (i.e., they're hosting and/or attending), and it would be too burdensome to update each occurrence of each repeating event to correct this Meetup annoyance. Therefore, please do not assume that the person listed as "host" will actually be hosting the event, or that s/he will be in attendance.

Community Drum, Dance & Flow Circle in Niles
This is a relaxed, informal group of folks who meet up to enjoy one another’s company, drum, dance, hoop, spin fire, or just move to the music in their own way. Everyone is welcome, at any level of skill and interest. Kids are very welcome! Please do watch out for your little ones in the proximity of spinning hoops, staffs, poi, etc. So far, we’ve been meeting at Niles Town Plaza (37592 Niles Blvd, Fremont, CA 94536) about once a month, on the full moon, starting around 6:30pm, and going until folks care to stop. Sometimes we have a second wave of people later in the evening, after the children have departed. Please bring a drum or another instrument, if you have one (or more) and wish to play and/or share. Sometimes we have extras on hand, but unfortunately, this can’t be guaranteed every time. Use of household items such as buckets and pie pans is encouraged, in the absence of other options. You might want to bring a chair, if you have an easily transportable one. To date, this event has always been free, since we are using a free public space. I would be happy to accept small donations towards the Meetup Group fee, but no one should feel obliged to contribute.
