Announcing our new name!

Redwood Empire Swing Dance Club is now North Bay Swing Dance Club.

Located in Sonoma County, California, we sponsor a monthly dance in the Santa Rosa area.

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.
