Throwback Dance: Carmel Highlands Inn

West Coast Swing

Back in the day, one of the best places to dance on the Monterey Peninsula was at the Carmel Highlands Inn. Before COVID-19 was even a news headline, the dancing at this great spot ended, several years before.

It was a changing of the management at the inn, the retirement of an awesome duo band at the time, and perhaps people even moving on. But for Jennifer and myself, this was THE spot to go West Coast Swing dancing every Friday night. There was nothing else I quite enjoyed more than going through my workday on Friday with the anticipation of a great night out of dancing after dinner and work. This was always a great way to kick off the weekends!

The Carmel Highlands Inn was a place for the local West Coast Swing community in Monterey (as well as surrounding areas) to come together, be social, chat, and DANCE! There was never again another place like it ever since. And with COVID, there really isn’t any places to gather and dance like before.

In time, perhaps there will be another such place. For now, we’ll look back fondly at what an awesome place this was for dancing and enjoying the company of good friends. Until the next dance spot crops up, keep on dancing at home, your garage, or with your loved ones! Just KEEP ON DANCING!!!
