     The Valley Swing Dance Club was founded on February 15, 1985 in the San Fernando Valley, California by Sonny Watson and his friend and DJ Kenny Wetzel to spread and promote CALIFORNIA'S OFFICIAL STATE DANCE: 'West Coast Swing' dancing in the San Fernando Valley and neighboring communities. "The Valley Club," as people like to say, started at a night club/ restaurant called "El Gatos Mexican Restaurant and Valley Club" in Van Nuys, California with a  grand total of eight members its first night and today boasts well over three hundred active members.

     Later moving to a newer location called "PI McFly's" - becoming later "Sleuth's Bar and Grill" in the Sherman Oaks Galleria (yes, of Valley Girl fame :) for a number of years, then to the Crest Lounge (later known as Jitterbugs and palladino's), plus a few other locations in between. Outgrowing the usually small, crowded floors of previous night clubs, we now dance at the American Legion Hall (Main Ballroom) in Reseda, CA., which has the large floor that we need, a full Bar and plenty of free, fenced parking, calling this Dance Night spot home to its members over the years.

      The V.S.D.C. has hosted a weekly dance every week except Christmas and New Years since 1985, which was originally on Tuesdays and only until recently when they switched to Wednesdays. Wednesday night dances consist of some of the best West Coast Swing Dancing with top notch WCS dance instruction that you can only get thru a Swing Club taught by many time WCS Swing dance champion as well as U.S. Open Swing Dance Champions "Sonny Watson" plus the DJ'ing of Sonny on the last Wednesday of the month with the other weeks being deejayed by one of the best West Coast Swing DJ's in the country ... Jack Smith.
