Friday Night Waltz is a high energy dance that features mainly Waltzes in the dances and classes, along with other dances like Polka, One Step, Swing, Salsa, Cha Cha, Lindy, and Tango. People are friendly, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Casual comfortable attire. Attendance is between 130 and 190. Average age is about 30 or so. People come from San Francisco, Berkeley, San Jose, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, and Oakland. We usually have two simultaneous classes from 7 to 9, introductory and intermediate, followed by 3 hours of dancing starting at 9pm.
