DCLX 2015?

Need another reason to come out to our dance happening this Saturday with Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five? Well, here ya’ have it!

We’ll be announcing the dates for DCLX 2015 this weekend at our DCLX’tra!

So get your dancing shoes out of the closet and head on over to the Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park this Saturday night to be the first to hear this exciting news. More details about the night can be found here!

DCLX’tra: Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five

DCLX'tra presents Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five on Saturday, October 25, 2014

When vocalist Chelsea Reed brought five of her friends together to play some tunes in a South Philly dining room in October 2012, little did she know that someday she and her band of handsome gentlemen would find themselves playing at the latest DCLX dance event! And not just any DCLX event, but the premier of our newly revamped DCLX’tra series. It’s not our main dance exchange; it is a special gift from us to you! Hope to see you there!

As usual, beginner lesson with fabulous local instructors included in your admission. And as a bonus, DCLX has a (functioning again) Square! So cash, check, or plastic all work.

Your photos are ready for pickup!

Actually in today’s world, they’re ready for tagging. We had a few great photographers in our midst at DCLX 2014 capturing the sights and some of the sounds, too (check out the videos below!).

Our official photograher, Braden Nesin of Made By Hand Photography, has buckets of photos to upload, but he has uploaded the photo booth shots from Saturday Night:

One of our local DJs, Jerry Almonte of JS Almonte Productions, is a guy who can get seemingly anything done. He’s been developing his eye over the last several years and he took some really impressive shots. Check them out:

Finally, we’ve got a YouTube channel (in case ya didn’t know!). Did you know that? Our videographer David Soltisyk of retrorhythmz, can take us back in time with videos from our bands and ensuing jams. Click once further:
