December is West Coast Swing Month!
Learn this sexy and sophisticated version of swing. Los Angeles gave birth to the West Coast Swing in the 1940s to go with some of the slower, more sensual swing-rhythm music. You will enjoy the playful, mischievous styling of this dance. Daniel will be focusing on the beginner and intermediate dancer for this class. Bring a friend or we will match you up with a dance partner. Everyone is welcome!
$40 for four classes (per person)
$15 for a drop in (per person)
For a great example of West Coast Swing,

Daniel Hutchison hosts and DJ’s this wonderful night of LGBTQ dancing. Enjoy a lesson and an evening of your favorite Country Western music, upstairs at the Norse Hall.

We’re dancing upstairs in the Lodge Room at the Norse Hall. The dance floor is bigger than at the PPAA or Ankeny St. Studio. We have our own restrooms upstairs, complete with sitting rooms for both men and women. The Norse Hall has a full bar downstairs. In addition to street parking, there is a parking lot located at the corner of NE Couch and Tenth.
