October Salsa & Swing Classes!

A former member
Fall means time to come inside for sexy dance classes!

Beginning through Advanced Salsa and West Coast Swing classes with pro instructor Victoria Tolonen
-- Instructor and Judge for ESPN Salsa Championships and World Swing Dance Council national events, and Advanced competitor.

If you've never danced before, these classes will be an easy intro to the technique and rhythm of these popular partner dances. If you're ready for more styling, technique, and cool patterns, try the upper level and technique classes. All are guaranteed to be fun and a great way to meet people! No partner or experience needed.
