Workshops

Upcoming workshops in Vintage, Historical & Social Dance; NEXT UP: VIENNESE NIGHTS in SAN DIEGO; Feb. 2, 2019
We will again experience the enchantment of a traditional Waltz Ball, celebrating the music and dances of the Strauss family and their contemporaries. Doors open at 6:30pm, with music from 7-10:15 pm.

San Diego's own Grand Pacific Waltz Orchestra, under the direction of Mr Joe Dyke, will provide LIVE authentic music for Waltzes, Polkas, Quadrilles, Schottisches and more! The fabulous Ms. Joan Walton of San Jose, California is our favorite Dance Mistress for the evening. Ms. Walton, an authority on historic vintage dances, will also teach a basic class in "survival waltz", as well as the specialty dances of the evening, in the afternoon prior to the ball.
