Announcing a new Meetup for The Twin Cities Night Life Meetup Group!

What: Dance Group for Singles

When: July 6,[masked]:00 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Please do not RSVP here. Please email the organizer of this group (Michelle at [address removed]) to join this group.

** On June 22, we had 16 men and 20 women, everybody had a great time learning the basics steps of Swing Dancing.
** On July 6, we plan to review the Swing steps learned on June 22, and learn basic steps of Salsa.
** It is OK if you missed June 22 and want to join us on July 6
** Right now, we are not looking for any more women, but we are looking for a few good men to balance the ratio.

This dance group will allow you to get some exercise while meeting a lot of people and learning to dance.

This dance group is designed for singles, and we will be rotating partners frequently to make sure that
** Nobody is without partner for long, and
** You get to dance with most everybody of opposite gender in the group.

This is subject to input from the group members. But the current plan is to have five weeks of dance lessons (starting at the beginner level) and then go dancing as a group. If there is interest, we can repeat similar groups every couple of months.

For dancing, as a group, we will select one of the following choices:
** Lessons in Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, and other Latin dances followed by a visit to a Salsa/Latin Nightclub.
** Lessons in Swing, Waltz, Fox Trot, and other Ballroom dances followed by a visit to a Swing/Ballroom Nightclub
** Some combination of the above two and possibly other dances.

When: Five Mondays from June 22, 2009 until July 27, 2009 (no class on June 29)

Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Where: Hampden Square Apartments, 2333 Long Avenue, Saint Paul, MN 55114
(Lessons will be in community room right next to apartment office)
Great location - close to highway 94 and 280 in St. Paul
Free street parking

Cost: $7.50/person/hour ($15/person/night), to be paid in the class (Bring cash)

Any night we have 20 or more people in the class, we will do a drawing for a FREE class for one person.

It is OK if you need to miss a class. We will review what we have learned before, at the beginning of each class.

Don't worry about dance shoes yet, we need to dance in sock feet in the Community Room. So, you have a few weeks to find the best dance shoes for yourself.

You may bring a snack to share (not required) and your own drink (no alcohol) to have during the lesson

Feel free to pass this information onto your friends/family/co-workers. More the merrier.
