First Friday Dance Parties - South Pasadena

Come celebrate the joy of dancing with a community dance party!

Renée Camus, in conjunction with the California Dance Co-Operative, is thrilled to present a new series of First Friday Dance Parties!

Join us on the First Friday of every month for a mix of different dance styles, from group contras and English country dances, to couple turning and social dances from the Victorian, Ragtime, and 20th-century eras, such as waltz, tango, one-step, swing, polka, and schottische. By offering a variety of dance styles rather than focusing on only one, these parties hope to bring together dancers from different communities while promoting a general love of movement.

A Dance Potpourri, if you will!

The evening starts with a half-hour dance lesson, taught by dance mistress Renée Camus, from 7:30 to 8 pm (we'll learn a different style of dance each month). Renée will also call the dances and offer brief introductory lessons as needed throughout the evening.

The November 3 lesson is in CROSS STEP WALTZ, a beautiful style of waltzing that's great for slower tempos.

No partner or experience needed.

From time to time the dance will take on a special theme or celebration, perhaps to tie into the month (e.g.: Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Winter Solstice), or present a special dance event, such as a speakeasy or cabaret.

Join us on Friday November 3, 2017, starting at 7:30 p.m., at the South Pasadena War Memorial Hall. 435 Fair Oaks Avenue, South Pasadena, California.

General admission is $12; Students $8. Light refreshments will be provided.

Like all Cal Dance Co-Op dances, we will have LIVE MUSIC! Our band for November 3 will be The English Roses.
