You can also go to lalindyhop.com for a list of local dance venues and classes. :-) - dancelaurensing  312.7 #834 1:57AM
For those that are local, Atomic Ballroom in Irvine offers swing classes on Tues and Fri nights and then have open dancing after the classes. I believe it's $15 for the class and the dancing after or $8 just to come and dance, which starts at 8:30pm😊 - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 4:00PM
Is this a swing dancing day? Can we please do a meetup? - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 1:02PM
I think it is a meetup - Dave   13499.2 #2 1:56PM
Then I need to start learning to dance and finding a date. I don't know which will be harder - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 10:36PM

That's my anniversary, but I'll be out of town for a wedding. Boo! - JenGwen323  2025.6 #77 1:55PM
Aaaaw happy early anniversary! - missariel33  2115.5 #72 4:49PM
Yeah, I'm trying to figure out is this a MW thing or a Disney thing? - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1027 3:01PM
Neither. It's an outside group that put it together, like Dapper Days, Bat Days, Rock Around the Park, etc. - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 3:39PM
Ok, so now I don't feel bummed about missing it. If its not Disney endorsed, I generally don't go. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1027 5:42PM
So you don't do MW events either? - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 11:10AM
😂😂😂😂😂 - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 11:14AM
As a general rule, I only attend events at the park that are actually endorsed and organized by Disney. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1027 12:48PM
So as not to void your warranty? - bluefairy  643.8 #313 3:28PM
No, I just feel that if Disney really wanted an event like that in the parks, they could easily do it themselves. Besides if it was organized by Disney, they'd do a much better job than any outside organization could...after all it is Disney's park. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1027 3:35PM
That must be the reason that none of us have any fun at any of the "non-Disney" sponsored events!!! Yet we still go!!! 😼😹😹😹 - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 3:48PM
I was wondering why Gay Days at Disneyland was such a huge flop. Now I know. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 3:51PM
👆 EXACTLY!!! Such a bust!!!!!! - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 3:55PM
NotNKansasAnymor... The reason that Disney doesn't endorse these events is because they don't need to. They don't need to spend money on these, yet people are gonna come and spend their money at the parks for these events. It's free money in their eyes. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 4:03PM
This must be why nobody goes to dapper day. The puzzle pieces are now complete. 😂😂😂😂 - lostgirl7988  697.8 #280 4:32PM
PEOPLE HATE FUN - nicoleface  1752.6 #96 7:14PM
UNLESS Disney endorses it @Nicolface 😏😉 - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 7:32PM
Go home fun, you're drunk! - MrsMears  217.1 #1773 11:24PM
Wow, Kansas...maybe you should go back to...Kansas. - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 12:50AM
Where in my comment did I ever say that these events weren't popular? Never said that. I only was stating that if Disney had any real interest in these type of events, they could do it themselves just as easily. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1027 3:13AM
Clearly you missed @W4DE's explanation that this is BASICALLY free money for DL... - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 9:35AM
Needs updated info. $92 a ticket now. Not $87. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 5:33PM
I updated it here but it's not my FB page, so I can't update it there 😕 - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 11:27PM
To be coureous I would talk to E1 first about taking over the five and dime and dancing, its an atmosphere show and they have their own thing going on so it might draw bad attention. I will be there for sure for Ellis Island Boys, I will let them know about this right away and they will be excited if they don't already know it - Dave  13499.2 #2 10:45PM
Wait. Is this an official Disney event? - RadioMaverick  1175.2 #149 11:13PM
no - Dave   13499.2 #2 12:03AM
Thanks for the heads -up - carminaire  802.9 #230 8:07AM
ha, ha, I think this event is going to be very popular, with so many people posting on it!!lol - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 10:34PM
I bumped it by the way, for those looking for all the info!! I hope to go and see some of youse all there!! - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 10:38PM
👊 It's today! - simba77  323.3 #788 12:14PM
