Tuesdays February 6, 2024 - March 19, 2023
East Coast Swing 7:00pm - 8:00pm
East Coast Swing is easily one of the most versatile dances for wedding receptions, parties, and live music festivals. It's a must have for social dancing. It consists of a triple step to each side, then a rock-step. It might take a little bit of work to learn the “Triple Step” but after you get the hang of the triple step, it is a super fun and easy swing dance to learn. It's perfect for a beginner and it can be danced to the beat of big band music, blues, and rock & roll. We will start from square one, then build up progressively. You will also learn techniques that will jazz up your dancing. At the end of seven weeks, you will be swinging to the music and smiling with confidence.
Foxtrot 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Foxtrot is a slow, smooth dance that involves fairly simple walking steps and side steps. Therefore, its a great dance for new dancers. The basic timing is Walk-Walk-Side-Together or Slow-Slow-Quick-Quick. Experienced dancers can add another timing “Slow-Quick-Quick” to jazz up their dancing. You will love to dance Foxtrot to the Big Band music like “Fly me to the moon” and “New York, New York”.
Both Classes 7:00pm - 9:00pm
