First Friday Swing Dancing

Let's go swing dancing!

Dancing again anyone? Or, for the first time?

One or two hundred people get together twice a week to dance it up. It's a great environment, friendly to new dancers, or "non-dancers". They've got classes before hand if you want to learn something or break some ice. Let's go. Because ... Friday.

Here's what it looks like: http://youtu.be/7IoEWQRdl0M?t=59s

And here's a quintessential clip: http://youtu.be/qkthxBsIeGQ

Class

If you want to take a class, there is a cost. It's $15 for a class [and it includes the dance, afterward]. Their calendar has more classes and details. The beginning class starts at 7:45.

Dance

After the classes, lots more people show up to dance to the DJ-ed music. If you're sorta shy, well lots of people are, but you can stick with the Nerds until you warm up to the place!

The price is included with a class. It's $10 for just the dance ($8 for students w/ ID). Music starts up at 8:30 and goes until, maybe 2am. People from the classes often hang around, and other people show up. Everybody's really pretty friendly.
