A Word About September Dance Classes:

For all of you new dancers we have a Beginning Swing Class. This Class will give you a strong foundation in Swing Dancing.

We always take the time to teach the Basics of dancing smoothly in time to the music with a partner.

Basic foot work and timing are most important to becoming a good partner dancer…

Moves are nice but if you do not lead them on Time and smoothly then moves are not so nice for your partners!

If you have take a Beginning Swing Class, Beginning Ballroom Class, or a Beginning Latin Class anywhere we have 3 special Continuing Classes for You.

  1. Continuing Swing Tuesday September 5 at 7:00
  2. Continuing Latin Class Tuesday September 5 at 8:00 and
  3. Continuing Ballroom Survival Wednesday September 6 at 7:00

If you are a more advanced Dancer we have 2 Classes that will challenge you and add some very interesting moves to your dancing.

  1. The Intermediate Ballroom Series with Helmut Licht (working on Tango and Fox-Trot in September) Monday September 4 at 8:00
  2. Intermediate East Coast Swing and Lindy with Chiles Wednesday September 6 at 8:00

Several people said that they would like to see more people (both Men and Woman) dancing most of the dances during the breaks.

That would be all of the Ballroom Dances, Latin Dances, Polka, and West Coast Swing.

Guys: Your Single step swing is great…. Now you need to expand your dance horizons to other dances and improve you Swing. Get these woman dancing.

Ladies: If you want to have a group of Good leaders who can lead the dances you like, then you have to cajole these guys into taking lessons, then join them, and support them.


Well,  Now you have the September Dance Class line up and we hope you will take advantage of these inexpensive and excellent lessons..
