Ballroom Dance Club begins 2015/2016 season

Dodie Prescott

The QC Ballroom Dance Club enjoyed the first of its four dinner/dances in December in the Crystal Ballroom at the Madera Clubhouse. The club celebrated the holiday season at the La Capilla De La Bolsa Restaurant in Madrid, Spain, with music by the Tom Patrick Band.

We will be welcoming members and guests to our next dinner/dance on Wednesday, January 20. Club members will dine at Le Louis XV Restaurant at the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, Monaco, experiencing outstanding food inspired by the French Riviera while enjoying the big band sounds of the Myron Sommerfield Orchestra.

The meal begins with a mushroom salad with herb pesto followed by a choice of beef tenderloin fillet or sea bass. Dinner concludes with a flourless chocolate cake with cherries in zinfandel sauce. The band returns after dinner to play wonderful dance selections for members and guests until 9:30 p.m.

If you would like to be part of this elegant evening and are not already a member of the club, please contact membership chair Justine Lewis at 399-4646 or [email protected] by January 6 for reservations. The Ballroom Dance Club still has memberships available, and non-member guests are always welcome to attend these events.
