Laf-A-Lot Dance Club

About Laf-a-Lot

This fun and vibrant ballroom dance club was started more than 80 years ago by a group of teachers who were not allowed to dance in public.  Well, much has changed since then but the Laf-a-Lot Dance Club is still going strong!

The club gathers on the first Saturday of every month for an evening of ballroom dancing that includes refreshments (BYOB) and music provided by the amazing Bakersfield Swingtime Orchestra!  A dance lesson is included and begins at 6:15 PM; Dancing begins at 7:00 PM.  Singles $15; Couples $25; Seniors or 21 and under $10.
