What we're about

We're folks who like to dance! We go to all sorts of dances, from ballroom to swing and to freestyle-express-yourself dances. Dancing is good for you so jump in and join in the fun! Some of us are members of the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists, a non-creedal church that welcomes all religions as well as agnostics and atheists, but others we just know through overlapping circles in the dance community. BFUU sponsors a monthly dance called Vintage Invasion, but most of the dancers also go to other dances. It's just nice to get to know people who have the same interests!
