Where is a good place to go ballroom Dancing?
Me and a group of friends have been taking a Ballroom Dancing class every day and want to find a place either in or between San Francisco and San Mateo.
None of us are over 18 yet, so it has to be a “kids friendly” place, but we don’t want to be dancing around a bunch of elderly people at some old-timers place cause we have most fun when we can be a little loud and get to be fun and big with our dancing (lifts).
We want to get dressed up in old-fashion clothes and look all nice and stuff.
Are there any places in the bay area (more specifically between SF and San Mateo) that seem like something we’d be interested in?
I cannot speak to the quality of dancing, the dress code, or average age at these places, but a search for social dances in that area returned these:

Also, find out if local college ballroom clubs host social dances which are open to the public. Those are probably up your alley because the people will be closer to your age, and they will probably be cheap (they are trying to attract students after all)
