THEMES

EVERY DAY is a good day for a FLAMINGO. It has been SO MUCH FUN every year to see the costumes and personal table decorations brought by dancers and fun frivolity of the flamingos and lights. Needless to say - these are here to stay! If you haven’t gathered any flamingo frocks yet, you might want to collect a shirt or two, maybe some feathered leggings or pink pants.  It’s great to feel like a regal flamingo!  There are lots of fun options out there. Check out photos from past events for inspiration.

SATURDAY NIGHT: “Keep the Magic AGLOW!”  Wear something that lights up - ring, pin, hat, shirt, headband, entire suit, etc. If you do go ALL OUT, be sure to do a test run of your lights in advance - with dancing - to make sure your lights don’t impede your moves! As of 2024, this night is dedicated to Paul & Karla Dornstedt, who started "Keep the Magic" and have been long-time influencers and supporters of the Southern California line dance scene.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Pavilion 

PSWB is held at the gorgeous Pavilion, a City facility with a beautiful wood floor, stage, and we set out round tables and chairs for our flamingos to roost for the weekend. 
Continuing from 2024 - we will have a table decorating contest! Free to participate and completely voluntary.  

Thursday 

This is the welcoming evening dance with the introduction of staff, a quick & fun lesson from one of our flock stars, dancing of some pre-scripted favorites, and open dancing by request with announced floor splits. 

 

Palm Springs does have a street fair in nearby downtown every Thursday starting around 6 PM with art, crafts, and food. With that in mind, the Event doors will open at 7 PM. Your DJ will start playing requests by 7:30 PM. The rest of the Thursday night fun (staff introduction, fun lesson, pre-scripted dances) will start around 8:30 PM, followed by more open dancing by request until 10:45 PM. 

Friday and Saturday 

Each day is filled with workshops, open dancing brain breaks, and reviews of classic favorites. 

 

Friday and Saturday workshops will be improver to high intermediate level dances.

 

On Friday and Saturday, classes begin at 8:45 AM. A tentative schedule will be posted, and registered dancers will be sent links (where available) for dances scheduled to be taught.

Sunday

Sunday is Flamingo Funday! While all the days are fun, Sunday is an inclusive atmosphere of fun and frivolity with the ever-present pink flamingos.

Sunday workshops will be beginner to improver level dance lessons.

On Sunday, classes begin at 8:15 AM. A tentative schedule will be posted, and registered dancers will be sent links (where available) for dances scheduled to be taught. Sunday also has tons of open dancing in between lessons, including the dance party to finish out the weekend. 

Before & After

PSWB is now on a holiday weekend! Monday, January 20 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2025. So come before Thursday and leave after Sunday - enjoy the weekend. There is so much to do in Palm Springs! 

Fla-lingo flashes (emails sent to registered flamingos) will have some details and special opportunities for before and after the event.
