Classes

Every Monday night at 7:15pm we offer a FREE beginner and intermediate lesson.  No partner is required.  Prerequisite for the intermediate lesson is knowing an 8-count swing out.  Once a month the intermediate class introduces a swing out for those who want to move up to this class .

Dancers are encouraged to attend classes as many times as they would like.
