Swing Into October…

Our Group Classes in October:

Lesbians Dancing
Putting On The RItz

Fridays, October 10th – November 21st, 6:30-7:30 PM
East Coast Swing
at Ankeny Street Studio; Corner of SE Ankeny & 9th Ave.

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. Think: good exercise and great fun! East Coast Swing is also a fun dance for the center of the dance floor at “StompTown” (see below).
$70 for seven classes (per person)
$15 for a drop in (per person)


Mondays, October 13th – November 10th, 7:00-8:00 PM
Nightclub 2-Step (Intermediate)
at Ankeny Street Studio; Corner of SE Ankeny & 9th Ave.

Gay Ballroom
Bring a dance partner, or we’ll find one for you!

Nightclub 2-step is one of the most popular forms of partner dance for slow and mid-tempo ballads. It combines the connection of slow dancing with contemporary music and a variety of interesting patterns. It’s easy to learn the basic steps and more advanced dancers will enjoy more complicated patterns. Please note this is an intermediate class; there will be a brief review of the basics but plan on spending most of the class on intermediate patterns. Bring a partner or come solo and enjoy this fun and easy dance. Call to see if Daniel is available for a private lesson the hour preceding the intermediate class if you wish to brush-up on the basics in NC2S.
$50 for five classes (per person)
$15 for a drop in (per person)
