There will be no PEERS vintage dance class on Sunday, March 25. Please join us at Clockwork Alchemy !

Dance classes will resume on April 1.

PEERS holds weekly Sunday afternoon dance classes at the Alameda Elks Lodge at 2255 Santa Clara Avenue in Alameda.

2 - 3 pm: Newcomer-friendly class
3 - 4 pm: For experienced dancers & brave newcomers

The 2:00 - 3:00 pm class is newcomer-friendly; the 3:00 - 4:00 pm class is for experienced dancers and brave newcomers and will cover more advanced variations and intriguing choreographies. The $10 class fee covers one or both classes!

No partners needed. We change partners frequently and our regular students are experienced dancers who will be happy to dance with you. Casual clothing or dance practice clothes are just fine, though some ladies do like to practice dancing their corsets! Soft-soled dance shoes that you can easily slide or glide in are recommended

Instructors include Cathleen Myers, the Dance Director of PEERS and the Fezziwigs' Dance Party at Dickens Fair; teaching assistants James Eric Myers, Cassandra Vlahos, Christopher Mobley, and Kat Repose.

Note: All levels of dance experience are welcome but inexperienced dancers are strongly advised not to attempt the 3:00 pm class without taking the 2:00 pm Newcomer class that precedes it.

Note: If an emergency requires us to cancel a particular Sunday's class, we will list this information on this page and on our Facebook invitation and Facebook Group Page.
This rarely happens but it's always a good idea to double check either our website or our Facebook page on the day of the class.
