    Hi, Louis. I'm Peggy's partner, and she asked me to respond. That would be great to have you join us starting next week (29th.) Are you interested in the basics level? And keep us posted as to whether your partner is coming, as we like to keep an eye on the gender balance.

I am trying to get in contact with my lady friend as she has has indicated before that she would like to learn swing. As for me I know basic and would do beginner with her and if not intermediate without. Will let you guys know. Louis

    I would like to take the series of swing lessons, however, I am finishing up with one more Salsa class on Jan 22nd. Also, I would like to include a partner as soon as she gets in touch with me.
