SFV Chapter Dances
    Monthly Dances

         Our monthly dance in Van Nuys, a great place to use all those
         lessons and show off your natural ability.

    Anniversary Ball
         The SFV Chapter was founded In June of 1961, so every year
         in June, we celebrate our Chapter's birthday!
         We mark the founding of our Chapter with a gala party.

         At this dressy dinner dance in November we crown our new
         Queen. Afterwards, there is a fun party with lots of dancing.
         Expect to be entertained by an exciting dance performance.

      Holiday Ball
         Our December party is especially festive, and we dance and
         celebrate to make the last party of the year a blast.
