I am very, very sorry, but I have torn a tendon in my foot, in addition to other injuries, and cannot dance responsibly for the foreseeable future. I will make announcements again here as soon as I am able to teach again. I am also happy to promote other open role dance events here, or have other people promote their events.
>Come dance with us! New dance classes starting Thursday, February 21st, in south Everett. Great location right across from beautiful Silver Lake, with lots of free parking and very easy to get to by car or bus.
This will be a 6-week class series, with the potential to continue longer or change to a different dance after 6 weeks depending on the interest of the students. West Coast Swing is a fun and versatile dance that works to a lot of different kinds of music. Usually danced to songs in 4/4 with a bit of an upbeat or swing, this dance often works to pop, blues, funk, and many other styles of music. Very much fun, and the class will break it all down and make it fun and easy to learn.
Each class will cost $10 per student per class, with payment expected at the beginning of class. Please bring cash.
All classes are open to people of all genders and gender expressions, and all orientations. These are partner dances with leads and follows, and those roles will be called as "lead" and "follow", not by traditional gender designation. Any individual is welcome to lead or follow by their own preference, but I ask that all students please be respectful of all other students. GLBTQ students and people of nonconventional gender are explicitly welcome. Please be advised that the teacher is a lesbian geek with trans* family members, and will not tolerate homophobia, transphobia, "nerd-phobia", or other hate/fear based discrimination among students. My goal is to create a fun and safe place for all interested students to learn.
If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here, and please help spread the word!
