As a ZUMBA instructor, I love to dance – and moving responsively with a partner really takes dancing to the next level! Learning and practicing a variety of dances keeps me challenged, boosts my happy endorphins, and often provides inspiration for some of the moves I bring to my ZUMBA Gold classes!
The Friday Night Swing Dance Club IS that place! Although I’ve danced at many venues over the years, this place feels like my dancing home. There’s no snobbery, people of all ages and abilities dance together, and the emphasis really is on having fun.
I’m continually amazed at the variety of really nice, active, and interesting people I meet on Friday nights. No couch potatoes here! It’s easy to strike up new friendships - or even find a great accountant, attorney, landscaper, flooring specialist, dentist, doctor, stock broker, or just about any other profession you can think of! Live Bands every week make this club unique – along with the two DJ’d breaks where we enjoy a wide range of other dance music. It’s the only place in town where you can dance East & West Coast Swing, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, Tango, Salsa, Rhumba, Merengue, Bachata, and lots more in one evening!
Adapting to a variety of partners is more fun, and actually improves dance skills.
Absolutely! And if they don’t ask me, I ask them! It’s very satisfying to assist beginners, but it’s also a great pleasure to dance with some of the more experienced dancers.
Love dancing, love this group, and after participating for many years, I’m finally making my membership official! It’s a pleasure to be a part of this fun Meetup and to welcome and encourage newcomers!
