Dance Salon in Reseda

You are invited to join us for an experiment. Walter Nelson, the producer of the Avalon Ball, will be using his rather large living room, with its hardwood floor, in a 1946 ranch style house as a dance studio for a bit of Jazz Age social dance. Dancing in living rooms to the radio or the gramophone was a popular pastime back in the day. That's the feel we will be going for.

Beginners should be there for the first hour, where Walter Nelson will teach fundamentals. The rest of the time, we will watch dance clips from old movies on the big TV, Walter will give pointers as needed, and we will dance to the REALLY oldies. Recorded music is planned, but if actual live music shows up, we could dance to that too.

You are encouraged to contribute light finger-food refreshments and beverages (alcoholic or not) for general consumption.

Comfortable Jazz age style attire is encouraged but not required.

If you are on Facebook, and intend to come, please RSVP on the Facebook event to give me some idea of whom to expect:
