Helix Collective's Classical Dance Club

  • Mar 2, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Helix Collective turns the Silverlake Lounge into a Classical Dance Club with their out-of-the-box mix of classical, world and rock n' roll! The Free Times called it classical "kicked in the ass by a rock drum set." The group provides quickie dance lessons throughout the show. Before the night is out, people who have never danced before will be up and dancing to salsa, Bollywood, bluegrass and Klezmer! It's a lightning-speed trip around the world, so wear your dancing shoes and get ready to party! Helix Collective features LAFC member Sarah Robinson.

Before the dancing gets started, Third Wheel Trio will get you in the mood with their feel good style that ranges from classical to jazz to folk and beyond! For more information about Classical Revolution click here.

The Classical Dance Club will take place during Happy Hour so be sure to take advantage of the drink specials. The Silverlake Lounge does not take reservations. Seating is first come first served. It is important to be punctual. There is no cover and no drink minimum. The bar only accepts cash. This is a dive bar--casual attire is fine. Free parking onsite.

    When I greenlighted this event I didn't know what to expect. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The music was great, and it was nice meeting new members, and vets. Talking with the musicians after the event and learning about the stories behind the music was awesome.

    Unfortunately several members have been kicked out for overall poor attendance. Many of you received warnings about flaking. Please take those warnings seriously.

    Hey Sarah, why the "helix" in your ensemble's name?

    February 26, 2013

    • Sarah

      When we started, we had a rotating group of players that would form into different combinations. It made us think of the shape of a helix and it stuck. :)

    • Sarah

      Little did we know then that a drum-set was in our future!

    Question: if your profile picture shows you as a BRUNETTE and you change to a BLONDE should you be forced to put up a new pic?????

    Is it 21+? I'm 20. :/

    February 23, 2013

    • Lionel

      I don't remember them checking ID--but you didn't hear that from me, lol. Seriously, I would assume it's 21. Call to confirm. We go here a lot, it would suck monkey balls if they got shutdown.
