Swing 1: Single-time . . . . . . . . . . 5:30 - 6:30pm
East Coast Swing is the best place to start learning partner dance and is probably the most useful and fun dance in our culture. This class will focus on faster Swing music. There is an immense variety of music that inspires Swing dancing – Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Pop, Western, and even Big Band! Watch our YouTube video for Single-time Swing. No prerequisite
Nightclub Two-step (Modern Foxtrot)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6:45 - 7:45pm
Danced to many forms of music, our Nightclub Two-step is a stream-lined version of Foxtrot and could be called Waltz in 4/4 time. We traveled in Cuba (when Celina was 5) and discovered that the regional style of Salsa in Pinar del Rio is the same as our Nightclub Two-step. In other words, this is a very flexible and useful dance style. Watch our YouTube video (see above link also).

3 Count Swing (aka Hustle) . . . . . . 6:30 - 7:30pm
We love this dance! In some circles, it gets an undeserved bad rap from people who think it is stuck in the disco era. But when people actually learn the dance, they love it's energy and the diversity of music which inspires it. Hustle challenges both partners to keep the pace, develops excellent lead and follow skills, and gets you into the groove. So much fun.
Prerequisite: Partner dance experience or instructor permission

Of course, we encourage full attendance to maximize your fluency in Swing dancing.
