The Cubberley Pavilion offers one
of the most comfortable, friendly places to dance in the San Francisco
Always wanted to learn? A wide variety of dances (swing, hustle,
rumba, tango, waltz, etc.) are taught at beginning, intermediate,
and advanced levels on a 'drop-in' basis. (Check our Dance
Calendar for the current schedule.)
You never need to bring a partner, and we switch partners frequently
so you get a chance to meet and dance with different people. Lively, entertaining
dance parties follow each dance lesson.
Then practice what you've learned (or
get your dance fix) on the single largest dance floor in the U.S.
Dance Quote of the Day
Dancing, is, for the most part, attended with many amorous smiles,
wanton compliments, unchaste kisses, scurrilous songs and sonnets,
effeminate music, lust provoking attire, ridiculous love pranks, all
which savor only of sensuality, of raging fleshly lusts. Therefore, it
is wholly to be abandoned of all good Christians.
Dancing serves no necessary use, no profitable, laudable, or pious end
at all. It is only from the imbred pravity, vanity, wantonness,
incontenency, pride, profaneness, or madness of man's depraved nature.
Therefore, it must needs be unlawful unto Christians.
The way to heaven is too steep, too narrow for men to dance in and keep
revel rout. No way is large or smooth enough for capering rousters, for
jumping, skipping, dancing dames but that broad, beaten, pleasant road
that leads to HELL. The gate of heaven is too narrow for whole rounds,
whole troops of dancers to march in together.
- William Prynne (1632)
