About North Bay Swing Dance Club

North Bay Swing Dance Club is the new name for one of the longest continuously dancing social dance clubs in California, Redwood Empire Swing Dance Club.

We present a monthly dance at the best dance halls in Santa Rosa, plus other fun special event dances from time to time that we announce here on this page, on our Facebook page, and on our email newsletter — sign up at the bottom of this page.

We welcome and encourage all dancers who have an interest in West Coast Swing Dance, from the absolute beginner to the most advanced dancers.

Our club’s purpose is to promote West Coast Swing Dance. The intent of this web site is to help dancers find a dance party, a dance workshop, a dance instructor, or a dance convention. So, pick an event and come join us for some fun!

Dance Monthly on the 4th Saturday!
