This is one of the few weekly options for Swing dancing on the West side of L.A. Rusty s has been going on since 1998 and always features live music. Crowd is friendly with very wide range of age groups and dance levels. At the Wednesday dances there are two classes prior to the dance included in admission – Intermediate & Beginner. This is a good place to take beginners who want to learn, as there is a lesson before the dance, there are other beginners to dance with, and the atmosphere is non-intimidating.
2,300 Square foot dance floor, all ages, fun and friend, bar and lounge, plenty of free parking. 60-100 people attend. (Note: Every month, the Wednesday dance is moved to the 1st Friday, where 150-250 people attend, free beginner’s class before the dance, and guest instructors for experienced dancers $5). – Brian
