Memorial Day Dance, BBQ, and Potluck Celebration!

Dear SDSDC Members and Friends,
As Memorial Day approaches, we would like to extend a warm invitation to you to join us for a day of joyous celebration, delicious food, and fantastic dance moves! We have organized a Memorial Day Dance, BBQ, and Potluck party, and we would be honored to have you participate.
This event is not just an opportunity to unwind and enjoy ourselves, but also a chance to honor the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. Together, let us celebrate their lives and the freedoms we enjoy because of their selfless acts.
The highlight of the day will be our lively dance floor, where we'll have an Intermediate Lesson by Mary Manzella, and a Vinhtastic DJ spinning the latest hits and classic tunes that will surely keep you grooving.
Of course, a Memorial Day celebration wouldn't be complete without a mouthwatering BBQ and a delightful potluck. We'll fire up the grill and provide juicy burgers. Additionally, we kindly request that you bring a dish to share with everyone—your favorite side dish, salad, or dessert. Let's make this a true feast of flavors!
We can't wait to spend Memorial Day with you, celebrating the spirit of unity, gratitude, and remembrance. It's going to be an incredible day filled with laughter, good food, and unforgettable memories.

Except for that advanced workshop, attending these classes is free with paid admission to the dance.  No experience is required for the beginner-level lesson.

A Special, more challenging workshop is held on the 4th Sunday of each month.  This workshop will be taught by a local or out-of-town professional instructor and there is an extra $10 fee. Usually West Coast Swing is taught.

Spring Special! April and May, this special workshop is included in the regular admission price without an extra charge!

On the First Sunday of the month, a dance other than West Coast Swing is taught in the main ballroom. The Introductory WCS class IS still taught on the 1st Sunday.

Our music mix includes music for other dances, including Country Two-Step, Nightclub Two-Step, Cha Cha, etc.  On each "First Sunday" we take the opportunity to teach one of these dances.
