Dancing is a great way to stay in shape, boost your mood, and meet interesting new people. The benefits for seniors are definitely worth looking into. Here are a few places to start.
In Orange County, you can expect a mix of music at the various venues scattered throughout the county, which means you’ll be sure to find a club to your liking, and one that re-kindles your youthful fire.
Senior Centers are a great place to start. Many offer dancing and other activities as well as a nice place to meet new people.

If you’d like to join the younger crowd, here are a few suggestions:
EnVy Lounge – This club offers salsa and bachata music for dancers, and when the DJ’s are in control, they play a very broad mix of hip-hop, reggaeton, and Top-40 music. The lounge is adjacent to a restaurant, so it’s very convenient to have a nice meal and then go to the lounge for entertainment and dancing. The crowd tends to be mostly a core of young-ish loyal followers who show up frequently to patronize the venue.
Time Nightclub – On any given day, the music could be EDM, Electro House, or Trap, and sometimes they have a special hip-hop night as well, to give everyone a chance to express their dancing desires. This club attracts patrons of all ages, from 20 to 70, primarily because of the diversity of music offered, but also because of the friendly service and the exciting venue.
Mansion Costa Mesa – DJ’s at this club love to play New Wave music, and the dance floor is so spacious that it can accommodate a huge crowd without anyone feeling crowded or squished. You can go casual or really dress up for a night at Mansion Costa Mesa, since a diverse crowd always shows up to keep things jumping, especially on weekends.
