    1. Hi Ivonne,

      I wish! I live in Santa Monica. We just drove to Orange County yesterday to go Swing dancing. Keep an eye on the Lindy Calendar. I’ll post any Swing dance in LA/Santa Monica/Venice that I hear about! Fingers crossed.

      Best,
      Brian

      1. Hinano’s washington Blvd just off the beach, not really a dance club, just a fun place to dance.

      2. I’m just waiting for a little more income and vaxined dancers before I buy a boombox and start planning the first dance party at Clover Park, a BBQ/pot luck DJ’d event one Sunday afternoon, on spacious shaded cement, with lots of pits and tables and parking. No problems with the city of Santa Monica. I’ll do a video of the area and post it. Brian, you might want to assist in some way, since you also live on the Westside.

    One entree required per person please.

  6. Hello. We wanted to invite Dixieland music lovers and dancers to the Society for the Preservation of Dixieland Jazz monthly concert meetings. We meet the 4th Sunday of each month at Duarte Elks Lodge, 2436 Huntington Drive

There is $15 admission for nonmembers, or $8 for members (however its only $20 to become a member). We are the oldest running Dixieland Jazz society in all of California, and we are celebrating our 60th anniversary this year! We’d like to extend a warm welcome to anyone who would enjoy our efforts to keep Dixieland music alive and well.
