On Tuesday nights, Atomic Ballroom has a great Balboa room. Some amazing dancers have been showing up, but there’s always room for more people. I would love to see you add it your calendar.

Brian says:

Thanks for the head’s up on Atomic Ballroom on Tuesday’s Kristy! I had them on the calendar, but did not mention Balboa. I’ve updated the calendar accordingly. Glad to hear it is flourishing! – Brian
