Good news! The SaddleBrooke Ballroom Dance Club (SBDC) has just been approved to resume many of our activities, in the HOA-1 Vermillion Room and the HOA-2 Mariposa Room and Mountain View Ballroom. These beautiful dance floors are a great place to learn some new styles, add steps to your current repertoire, or improve steps that you have already tried. Given the recent confirmation of space availability, the following events are still tentative, pending final planning details, but we want to alert you to our plans. Be sure to check our website ( to confirm the events as the dates approach.

First, let’s look at our very popular FREE BALLROOM DANCE LESSONS. Each month we will highlight two different ballroom dance styles, such as waltz, east coast or west coast swing, rumba, or night club two step. And SBDC also offers coached dance practice, when instructors are available to answer your questions, and you have a chance to practice on our beautiful dance floors. Please review the calendar at for more details. And tentatively put these weekly events on your calendar!
