Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know the schedule has changed for The Riverside Junction at Dancing in Riverside. (Not the same on the calendar above anymore)

We now have a 6:30 pm lesson, which this month is Blues. (Will vary each month)

And at 7:15 are the Lindy 1&2 lessons, then the dancing starts at 8pm!

Please come join us for only $5!!

Byron says:

Something to update for May 4th & onward for Wednesdays: Strutter’s Ball is moving locations.

https://www.facebook.com/events/1748381625448770/

Moving from The Club House in Placentia to the Ritz ballroom in Santa Ana. James Bianco has shared this on his facebook page so hoping to see it there since it’s opening, they’ll be a lot of people going since it’s the first time at a new location!

Brian says:

Hi Byron,

Thanks for the head’s up! I heard about this too and I’m excited about it too! If you don’t mind, let us know what you think of the new venue!

Thanks,
Brian

Byron says:

Will do!
