We are going to the Hanger Dance on 5/22/2010. To prepare for this dance outing, we are doing two weeks of Swing dancing lessons. We will start out at the beginning level in week 1 and move on to advanced steps in week 2.
Swing Dancing lessons
** Wednesday 5/5/2010 and Wednesday 5/12/2010
** 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. both days
** We will start with basic steps and move to some intermediate steps during week one. During week two, we will continue where we stopped at the end of week one, and move on to more advanced intermediate steps.
** At the beginning of week one, you must committ to (and pay for) week one and week two.
** If you miss week one, please do not join us for week two. This will allow us to cover the more advanced steps, and to show off on the dance floor when we do dancing as a group.
As always, we will be rotating partners frequently to make sure that
** Nobody is without a partner for long, and
** You get to dance with most everybody of opposite gender in the group.
** Couples and partnered people are welcome if you are willing to rotate partners with everybody in the group.
For both weeks of the class, we will meet at Patrick's Cabaret at 3010 Minnehaha Avenue South at Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN 55407.
** There are parking lots on both sides (South and North) of Patrick's Cabaret, and you can park at any open spot marked Patrick's Cabaret.
** In addition, street parking is free after 6:00 p.m. (Parking on Snelling, 1 block west, near the police station seems to be better.)
** There is a Police Station across the North parking lot. This means we will be safer in this area. However, be sure to follow all parking rules/signs.
** There are a number of bus lines running near this location, and the light rail is only two blocks away.
** The entrance to the studio is through the red door at the back end of the South parking lot.
Please bring your own beverage to drink during the lessons. (There is no vending machine at the studio.) There is no alcohol allowed at the studio. However, some of us like to go out for food/drinks at a nearby establishment after the lesson.
Cost for the class is only $20/person for two weeks, to be paid at the beginning of week one. (Please bring cash; exact change is preferable.) If we have more than 20 members, we will do a drawing for one person to get a free class.
(There will be additional costs for dance outing.)
We hope to see you there!
