    Lake Merritt Dance Center on 1st and 4th Friday Nights ….Need updating….Dj Geri Foley does not play on these nights….

  2. Addie says:

    I believe Bay West Ballroom in San Rafael is closed and Danceeasy in the East Bay is no longer in business.

    • smoothlady says:

      I am not familiar with Bay West. I remember Danceeasy from several years ago. Don’t know if they are in business. Sadly, I have seen many ballroom dance places go out of business since I started dancing about 20 years ago. One reason is that most of the people who were dancing ballroom in the 30’s – 50’s are dying off and there are not many younger people coming on board. The Allegro Ballroom in Emeryville is still going strong, as is the Veteran’s Memorial also in Oakland. There is also dancing at the Ashkenaz. See http://www.ballroombayarea.wordpress for more East Bay places.
