Beginning level Swing dance class before the Advanced Swing class

Beginning level

Swing dance class before the

Advanced Swing class

The lessons will be 4 Saturdays

3/2/13, 3/9/13, 3/16/13, 3/23/13

(Field Trip to be planned in the class, based on people's plans for Holy Thursday/Good Friday/Easter)

Check in at 1:45,
Lesson from 2:00 to 4:00,
Practice time 4:00 to 4:10 (Optional)
Optional: Go to a bar downstairs in the same building after 4:10 to socialize (tabs on your own)

Depending on the interest level, the Advanced Swing class will be after Easter and will include more advanced moves in East Coast Swing as well as other styles of Swing dancing including West Coast Swing. But you must complete this 4 week beginning level class to attend the Advanced class.

(For those who have completed my 4 week beginning class before might want to attend this 4 week beginning level class as a refresher and you can do so at half the cost. See below.)

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

Couples and partnered people are more than encouraged to join us. They can start/end with their partners, but change partners in-between.

(This is a multi-group activity. So, people from other groups will join us. Also, we many invite people from local Singles Clubs.)

      Hi Angela, FYI, in case you are interested in Hanger Dances. I don't think we will do another beginning swing lesson before the Hanger Dances.
