Swing Dance Classes

Happy New Year everyone!
We are continuing our 4 weeks series of Beginners and adding a new Pre-Intermediate (I) swing dance classes, starting Saturday January 11th.
4 weeks of fun and exhilaration that will start your new year on a positive and healthy note.

NISSREENB&WSwing is a vintage American partner dance that was practiced between the 20′s and 50′s to Jazz and big band music. Wikipedia definition of Swing dancing

Please note that this series is sequential, therefore, no drop ins after first week please. Skipping more than one lesson is not recommended as you will have to catch up on your own. We are trying to be fair to those who commit to learning with us and maintain a flow and efficiency in our classes.
