Yes. You don't have to be a couple, but single persons must
sign up for two memberships and attend dances with a dance partner.
The club requires that people sign up as a couple
to have predictability in both a balanced dancing partner ratio and
the financial support of the fixed costs of the dances to ease planning.
We currently have two membership options.
- Member Couple: Both members of a (usually married
or long term committed) couple sign up.
- Member and Partner: A single person can join
paying for a membership without necessarily having a consistent partner.
There are currently a handful of Member and Partner members and they
usually invite former members or other dancers in the east bay dance
(The author personally finds this to be an impressive and delightful
date opportunity for way cheaper than a typical holiday dinner dance party with live music.)
