A member-based club, Allegro Ballroom is organized as a non-profit, public-benefit educational corporation [501(c)3] registered as Allegro Dancers, Inc. Our successful operation since 1994 is largely due to the dedication and support of approximately 100 “regular” Allegro members who staff the front desk, volunteer as DJs for our parties, pitch in to organize special events, and serve on an elected Board of Directors. Allegro thrives on the creative energy that comes from our members’ shared interest in dance and the spirit of volunteerism.
We have four ballrooms that provide 20,000 sq ft of dance areas and practice space. Each ballroom is equipped with a quality sound system. Our ballrooms have ceiling-mounted speakers which project music to all parts of the floor and equipped with colorful party ceiling lights.
Our DJs have access to the centralized Music Library, which is a computerized selection of literally thousands of ballroom dance tunes of every kind. We also have TVs and projectors to view videos.
Extensive parking is free, convenient, and well lighted. EMERY GO-ROUND, a free shuttle service around Emeryville, stops at the MacArthur BART station and at FedEx Office Print & Ship Center (Emeryville), which is a short walk to Allegro. Check schedule for details.
