CLEAR LAKE — Move to the beat of big band music with Nonsemble’s Club Flamingo on Saturday, Oct. 22, at the Clear Lake Arts Center.
The evening of live music, ballroom dancing and decadent desserts starts at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30.
Reminiscent of the nightclub and “social” ballroom from days past, the arts center, with the help of Nonsemble, will transform the Sukup Performing Arts Wing and Hanson Gallery into Club Flamingo.
Tickets are $9 in advance or $10 at the door. Tickets can be purchased by calling 641-357-1998, emailing email@example.com or visiting the arts center, 17 S. Fourth St., downtown Clear Lake.
Tickets include coffee and desserts featuring champagne cake and decadent chocolate cake. Wine, beer and appetizers will be available to purchase.
Tables can be reserved for $10; tables hold up to eight people.
“It’s a really fun evening,” said Paula Hanus, arts center director. “Nonsemble puts on a fabulous show.
“In April, we had people of all ages on the dance floor. By the end of the evening we had a 12-year-old boy dancing with his mother and sisters and a 60-something son dancing with his 101-year-old mother.”

Members are John Aslakson, Keith Bauer, Ken Hanus, John Henry, Doug Jenson, Terry Kaduce, Jim Larson, Dick Morris, Jim Reisinger, Kim Reisinger, Janelle Renner, Jim Reynolds, Dick Schinnow, Ron Stroup, Margaret Tue, Dave Underwood and honorary member Bill Nicholas.
This event is sponsored by Jim and Glenda Larson.
