Wed September 24 at 7:00 PM, Verdi Club
2424 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
A tantalizing evening of slow dancing. Inspired by dance halls of the 20s/30's era, passion and desire mixes with propriety and restraint. Each participant is given a dance card and a dance lesson that everyone can pick up (really). Taxi dancers also in attendance for your enjoyment.
Passion and desire mix with propriety and restraint when we create the '20s/'30s dance hall.

Which side will you be on? Will you keep a spot open on your dance card for the comely stranger across the room? Or will you sweep into the arms of a willing taxi dancer, knowing that a dollar a song is all you are to them?

We will teach you to slow dance (something appropriate for any level of dancer) and provide you with a card to arrange your prances for the night. Wallflowers beware: our roving matrons will match you up.

A bevy of Taxi Dancers will also be in attendance. Who, for a dollar a dance, will "teach" you slow dancing for one song. (And feel free to inquire about our 'private classes" behind the screen.)

Doors at 7:00. Arrive early. Start filling your dance card. At 8:15 we will breeze you through how to use a dance card, an easy dance lesson, and some simple rules of decorum. Music begins promptly at 8:30, with intermissions between songs. Music ends at 11:00.

RSVP so others can start filling in your dance card.

Ah yes, behind the screen, where propriety and restraint are not to be seen.

Hmmm. I am intrigued.

I'm skeptical that a 15-minute dance lesson could possibly suffice, tbh.
