“Solo” Swing Dance Classes!

Tuesdays in June, 7-8 pm

Have fun this summer with these non-partner classics done by dancers all over the world! They are easy to learn, a healthy workout, and will increase your “vocabulary” of moves.

Learn cool moves such as the “sailor step”, “boogie walks”, “fish tails”, “mess-a-round”. Connect with your own body, increase balance and flexibility, feel rhythm, use your arms, practice weight transfer, breathe, and increase self-expression, all in joyful community.

No partners. Focus on you!

Find out why this was the most popular dance in the country in 1938. Inspired by teenagers, “You just got in a group and followed along.”
