My daughter just moved to Palm Springs for work. She is 25 and wondering where to meet people her age. She is really into swing dancing but can't any venues so far.

Puhleeeez - don't tell me she can't find swing dance venues - of all places - in Palm Springs!

People Who Dance

Palm Springs is a mecca for swing dancers, but unfortunately, not so much for ballroom dancers - particularly if you do international standard.

Jay Byam puts on a few swing dance camps here every year, plus there are TONS of places for swing dancing every night of the week in the desert. Mostly west coast swing, but if you swing, you know you can do east coast, shag, balboa, lindy, charleston, hustle, etc. to most music.

Tell that girl to get out there and dance!!!!!


*PS* My son, who is a dance instructor and personal fitness trainer just came in here and read this. He wanted me to add that he's also 25. not sure if he really wanted me to post that but ..... what the heck!

My daughter does East Coast but is willing to learn new things as she was originally a ballerina. Where are these places? She saw Billy Reeds online but is afraid she might be the only young'n. She has nothing against dancing with older people and dances with many mature partners down in the OC. I would love to see her start up dancing in the desert and finding new dancer friends. She has only been in Palm Springs since late January and still settling in.

Billy Reed's is a combination of both old and young - as are the other dance spots in the valley. During "season" the Palm Springs Pavillion (which boasts a 10,000 square foot dance floor) holds ballroom dances on Wednesday nights and some Saturdays, of which swing danving is a part. Jackalope Ranch (Kaiser Restaurant Group) has dances - mainly swing dance. My son is out there all the damn time! Indio Performing Arts Center holds regular Friday or Saturday night dances, Cougar's in Palm Desert has dancing (primarily WCS). If she's willing to drive abut 45 minutes or so into the IE there are a TON of dances going on - Riverside, and throughout the IE. My son and I are dance regulars as we both teach dance, compete in dance, and are active in the social dance scene.

Your daughter should also consider membership in USA Dance. The Inland Chapter has a LOT of dance activities going on all the time, and most of our colleges and universities in the area have ballroom dance teams (swing dance falls into the ballroom dance category). She is definitely going to find like minded dancers in her age group. Most older dancers (like myself) have kids who dance. You can't live in a ballroom dancer's home and think you're gonna get away without dancing! LOL Thus, there are a lot of 20-somethings in the IE who dance.

Thank you so much for all of the information . I will pass the information along. She was introduced to swing dance by a friend and her dad and then took social dance in college. She has the bug. Last year she performed with a team and had a blast. She is hoping to start a swing dance club at the school where she teaches.

Well, she found some action in downtown Palm Springs but not her type of dancing. Plenty of 20+ people. She went with her girlfriends from out of town who like herself are not drinkers. Unfortunately they did not like getting hit on by drunks. I don't think my daughter will feel safe going out alone in this atmosphere. She doesn't drink and dance. She might try drag her boyfriend out (not a dancer) this weekend. I'm hoping she'll find a place to dance that she feels comfortable to go to alone like she did in the OC. Her friends that have been visiting won't give dance a try including the BF so she has to find some dance friends out there.

She should join USA Dance. Typically, dancers aren't drinkers. I don't drink. She would be safe going to a USA Dance event by herself because there are no drunks - just a bunch of like-minded dancers out to have a good time on the dance floor. I go by myself, but I know everybody, so it's like meeting up with my friends.

D&D's in Riverside has a dance every Friday night and some Saturdays. I know it isn't Palm Springs, but it's about 45 minutes away and a very nice venue.

Wow! I've been away and what a surprise! So there is hope for people and dating, who live in the Inland Empire (did online dating and its just "NOT" in the cards for me, I seem to attract all the "wrongs", or is that common with all people anywhere?????)

Well I'm still here, had a few blind dates (dreaded) and well its discouraging
but one of those blind dates was set up in LA, and proves to me (unless your desparate) its just like picking a needle in a haystick, or the other saying "you win some, you lose some"....I am hanging in there though, its just lonely and I'm homesick, theres not much to do out here, unless you love hole in the wall bars (or biker bars) or casinos....all of which I dislike...
