February 2013 – Be Our Valentine

We continue in February with the last 4 weeks of our 6-week East Coast Swing group class. Experienced swing dancers are invited to join us at any time during the series. Enjoy some dancing with your sweetheart (or a sweet friend)!

Fridays, Jan 18th – Feb 22nd 6:30-7:30 PM
East Coast Swing (Beginning/Intermediate)

Evolving from the Lindy Hop in the 1940s, the East Coast Swing is indispensible in its versatility—nearly every band and DJ will play a large collection of “Swing” music when you’re OUT DANCING. Beginners will easily pick-up the basics and more advanced students will enjoy patterns and routines that challenge and energize. East Coast swing has hundreds of patterns—so even if you’ve had the class before you’ll be learning new steps. In six weeks, we’ll cover lots of ground and have a great time.

$60 for six classes (per person)
$15 for a drop in (per person)
