Next Gen Dance
June 2nd, 2018

Please join The Next Generation Swing Dance Club at the Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville for our next Club Dance on Saturday, June 2nd, 2018, from 6 PM until late. We look forward to seeing you there.

The DJs two-fers just keep on rollin'  — this month we have John Lindo and Martin Casillas! The music will be a mix primarily of West Coast Swing and a few songs for other social and swing dances. Be there!

We like John so much (and we love to squeeze as much from him as we can when we can!) that he'll also teach our Beginning WCS Lesson in the back ballroom from 7 PM until 8 PM. A DJ two-fer, and a John Lindo two-fer!

You can always see who will be spinning the music and who will be teaching the beginner lessons at future Club Dances by consulting or Next Gen Dances & Events page.

Our 2018 Luck-of-the-Draw Jack and Jill Series preliminaries culminate with Round VII–the last round before the finals! Winners receive complimentary passes to Next Gen Club Dances, and the finals are in July. Winners there will receive weekend passes to Boogie By The Bay 2018! Come early and sign up before the 8:15 PM cutoff (…and signing up after 8 PM may put you on the wait list…)

REMINDER: We check membership cards at the door. We want to make dances more secure and ensure that current members receive the dance discount membership benefit. So make sure to bring your card with you to speed up the process at the register! ALSO: Next Gen member discount prices are in effect at the door until 10:30 PM!

The address of The Allegro Ballroom is 5855 Christie Avenue, Emeryville, CA 94608. It is conveniently located off of I-80 next to the Powell Street exit (just past the IKEA and Trader Joe's). Coming from I-80, take the Powell Street exit headed East, turn left on Christie Avenue just past the Denny's, and turn left into the parking lot at the last entrance in front of the strip of buildings, immediately past the traffic light at Shellmound Way. The Allegro Ballroom is at the rear of the strip.

Thank You Outgoing Board, Welcome Incoming Board

Each April the membership of The Next Generation Swing Dance Club elects a new Board of Directors to serve a one-year term.

Next Gen thanks the outgoing 2017-2018 Board of Directors for their service…

…and welcomes the newly-elected 2018-2019 Board of Directors!

Please note: Board action on May 5th, 2018, in accordance with TNGSDC's Bylaws, appointed John Su as Membership Director, and appointed Johhny Lee to fill the hence-vacant position of Independent Director.

Next Gen is an all-volunteer operated non-profit corporation, and we always welcome interest in and inquiries about participation on the Board of Directors and in all of the services club members and volunteers provide. For more information, please see our Club Benefits, Volunteering & Board page, or our Contact Us page.

Next Gen Turns 30!

Flash! We (that's all of you, too!), The Next Generation Swing Dance Club, celebrated our 30th birthday at the April 7th club dance. Here's to the next 30 years!

Boogie By The Bay 2017 was…


Boogie By The Bay 2017 was a blast! We hope all of you were able to attend our 25th Anniversary Gala. Once again, Brad Whelan has made a selection of photographs from the weekend available for download at no charge. (So…who is that man in the kilt…? ;-)

If you missed Boogie this year (and if so, we are so sorry for you ;-), well…you only have to wait *4* more months to attend Boogie By The Bay 2018!
