Stand Alone Workshops
We are offering one time workshops based on feedback from dancers. Dancers report that their lives are so busy that they are not able to commit to a class series. Yet they want to keep learning and enjoying the fun that dance classes provide. In these two hour workshops you will learn or relearn some of the basics of the dance form and have fun. We expect all participants to have some dance experience and understand the concepts of partnering and dance frame. There may be additional pre-requisites for certain workshops.
Individual workshops are $ 20 each or $15 for students. No advance registration required. Just show up and register. Cash or credit cards welcome.
Preregistration for all five workshops on either Sunday or Wednesday is $80. ($60 for students, 23 and under) Register below.

Upright, close and relaxed, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to dance with a partner to fast-tempo swing music. Imagine gently bouncing and skimming across the floor.
