San Diego Dance Venues for Fridays

Friday is one of the busiest nights of the week for dancing in San Diego, California. Everyone gets off from work, often early, does a few errands then gets ready to do something fun on Friday evenings. It’s almost a tradition! Most of the major dance studios have Friday & Saturday night dance parties but there are also a host of other dance venues including nightclubs and halls. Below is a list divided by style of dancing, e.g. swing, tango, salsa and ballroom. Please contact the venue to make sure that dancing is available as it is difficult for us to check every dance venue’s schedule. Feel free to contact us with any updates so we can keep ourlist current!
