Welcome Swing Dancers

The Redwood Empire Swing Dance Club (RESDC) is located in Sonoma County, California. We sponsor a monthly dance in the Santa Rosa area. Browse Swing Times News, and the calendar, left, to find locations and information about dances in Sonoma County.

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.

We are very excited to start at our new venue for our dances beginning January 22, 2022 at the Santa Rosa Veterans Hall, 1351 Maple Street, in the Lodge Room.


Presidents Message:

Here we are in September! The students are back in school and soon summer will be officially over.

We had a great turn out for our August dance. Our beginning class, taught by Brenda Shatto, had 10 students and I think we had close to 25 for the Intermediate class taught by Austin Kois. We had over 40 people attend. Let's keep those dancers coming!

Thanks to all of you who continue to support the club by paying your membership dues and for those newbies that have joined. Your membership helps our club bring in great teachers and deejays, provide snacks and water at the event, and has allowed us to upgrade our lights, speakers, and microphones for the instructors.

Our September dance will be held on September 24, 2022. Kelly Casanova will teach the Intermediate class and be our DJ for the evening. Kyoko Morrison will teach the Beginner class.

We will continue to require proof of vaccination (unless you’ve already done so) - no booster required, and masks are optional. We have some exciting news coming in October so watch for that email and I will make the announcement at our October dance.

See you on the dance floor.....

RESDC President
