Decades Dance

Generation Next’s Decade Dance is an annual event that gives guests the chance to party through the ages at a different decade each year. 
Through Baycrest, we are helping our community age fearlessly, so we love how fitting it is to host an event that celebrates different eras in history.

Past Events

1970’s Decades Dance: ‘Studio 54’ 

In 2023, we transported to 1970's New York City and entered the ‘Studio 54’. Where getting past the velvet rope meant you were in for the best night ever! Guests donned their polyester jumpsuits, chiffon dresses, bell bottoms, and metallic wrap dresses and danced the night away! Join us for a really fun night of cocktails, disco music, and lots of glitter all in the name of supporting Baycrest's amazing work.
