I cast Charleston... at the darkness.
Wow this page was horribly (as in 3+ years) out of date... someone want to update this to reflect the actual state of affairs? Eg, Pomona somewhere, and who knows.
Sadly there hasn't been dancing in Platt for a long time now (unless you count RenoNight?), but Blaisdell Swing Club holds swing dancing on monday nights. Last year it was down on NorthPomona? somewhere.
If you want to learn Lindy Hop you can, through (surprise!) the Lindy Hop club. Fall 2004 they met in the Smith campus center on Pomona, at 2:00 on Saturdays, don't know if that's slated to change for spring 2005, but I'd guess not. It's an hour of learning how to dance, followed by an hour of music for those who want to dance without being told what to do. (Stay to dance afterward. I didn't for a while and now I can't remember anything.)
