Rene Arreola West Coast Swing

South Bay Dance Fling 2016


South Bay Dance Fling 2016 has come and gone and the event was a blast! The directors of this event are Glenn, Sue & Candace Cravalho. It is a mix of Country Two Step and West Coast Swing. Held in San Jose, California during Labor Day Weekend, this event has plenty of dance workshops, contests and social dancing.

Our dancers represented well at this event, both on the social dance floor as well as in dance competition. Jennifer placed 3rd in Intermediate Strictly Swing with Santa Cruz Swing Club’s Scott Siemer. Jennifer also took 2nd place in the All-American Jack and Jill contest with none other than Champion West Coast Swing dancer Jason Wayne.

As for myself, I also made the finals in the All-American Jack and Jill contest. But my competitive highlight for the weekend was placing 3rd with Deanna Kirchen in the Advanced Division, Jack and Jill west coast swing.

All in all, the weekend was full of fun, social dancing (and lots of late night dancing.) I danced till 4AM myself on Friday and Saturday and danced till around 2AM on Sunday night. We have our calendars marked for next year to attend this event. We hope to see you there!
