Come Swing Dance This Friday Night!

From: user 1.

The most FUN drop-in Class and BIGGEST Swing Dance Party is tomorrow night!

Taught and DJ'd by Victoria Tolonen, Advanced/All Star dancer, teacher and judge for the World Swing Dance Council.  (Woohoo, sounds important, eh? But it's all just fun dancing.)

Sons of Norway (549 NW Harmon) near Westside Cafe, off Galvevston

7:30 Drop-in Beginning Class ($10, incl dance)

8:30 Dance ($6)

This is WEST COAST Swing... not your grandma's swing and not country swing...

It's smooth, sexy, slow or fast and totally different than any old school swing.  AND you should try it! No partner needed and two left feet are totally acceptable.  Come to the Beginning class to learn the basics and meet people as you rotate partners.  (Everyone's nice, I promise.)  After class you can get out and practice, or just watch or sit and have a drink and meet people. I won't push you onto the floor if you just want to check it out.  :-)

Since it's an event venue but not a bar you're welcome to bring drinks or snacks. (None are provided.)


Here's a link to some of my friends dancing in California.  They're All Star level, so you're not expected to do this in Bend, but it shows how sexy and versatile the dance is.  This is improv, not choreographed, and they're not partners... it's all a cool communication.


Whether you need encouragement to get on the floor, or you're a dancin' queen, come join the West Coast Swing trend in Bend!  All are welcome! (Preferably 16+)
