Sample Electro Swing DJ set by Fact 50:
We continue to be your one-stop shop for Retro Futurism. Musically, we feature the best of Steampunk and Boom Swing, socially we're a weekly costume party, dance night and LARP, all rolled into one.
Alt. Dance is an alternative dancefloor from a past that never existed. We play traditional music, non-traditionally and we dance to have fun! It's the dance party for "all times"!
We provide the opportunity to dress up, socialize, dance and play. The only thing it's missing is you!!!
Every Thursday at DanzHaus
1275 Connecticut Street, San Francisco, CA 94107
Doors - 7pm
NO PARTNER OR EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY!
Admission is $5 with no lesson, $3 for a beginner's dance lesson or $5 for an intermediate dance lesson. This weeks lessons will be swing at least. I'm working on putting something else together.
The Danzhaus features a very homey little lounge to sit and talk while cavorting, plus plenty of private booths in the main room. Come and show off some of your favorite acquisitions, new or old.
As always, I'll structure my lessons on the people who come, teaching Intermediate Swing from (7:30-8:30) and Beginners Swing from (8:30-9:30). If you want to learn something in particular, feel free to let me know and I'll make sure to include it.

Beginners Lesson - 8:30-9:30pm
Additional types of dance will be brought in nightly as available.
Open Dance - 9:30-late

For those of you who want to LARP (which is not mutually exclusive from dancing... unless you want it to be...), character creation starts at 7pm and the game starts at 8pm!
For a flavor of our game, read on....
As the airship Belle Nuit, a floating entertainment, circus and pleasure cruise in the skies, pulled into yet another dock, the barker hollered, "Behold the Terror of the Skies! GARGANTUA! A clockwork replica of a beast only whispered of among the tribes of aester-born! GARGANTUA! A miracle of modern science! What mad genius could create such a thing, and to what nefarious purpose might it be put to use, if ever it were to fall into the wrong hands? Come One, Come All, step right up to see the pinnacle of wonders in the age of wonders! GARGANTUA! We guarantee that you will never see anything like it ever again. Only here for a brief time, buy your tickets now..."
