How long have you been swing dancing? Just getting my feet wet. I took a class once but don't remember much. I know enough to be popular at weddings. I invented swing dancing!

I took some group lessons with a friend about 15 years ago, then didn't continue with it because my friend moved and I had no one to dance with. I've recently been trying to get back into it as of last fall.

What swing dances do you know or what swing dances are you interested in learning? Jitterbug/East Coast Swing? Lindy? Balboa? Charleston? Blues? West Coast?

I know the jitterbug and basic east coast swing. The lindy hop and charleston are what I would like to learn most.

What interests you most about swing dancing/learning how to swing dance? I need to expand my social circle! I will enjoy the health benefits! I LOVE swing music! It looks like so much fun! I can't stand another Saturday night alone with my cats

I love the music and I think swing is such a goofy fun way to dance. You can't help but smile while you're doing it.

Are you interested in attending monthly dances with pre-dance lessons and live bands? What motivates you to attend a dance? Location? Band? Night of the week? Friends are going too? Price?

Yes, I have made it to a few of the ones that were at the Slovenian Workman's Home, plus the one in January in Westlake.

Are you interested in taking 5 week lessons and/or specialty workshops? What days, times and locations are good for you?

Yes, but it would be nice to have something closer to Cleveland than Brecksville, particularly on the east side.

Introduction

I'm a beginner swing dancer who has loved big band and jazz music since I was a kid. I hope to continue learning more of the different styles that all make up swing as a whole.
