Beginner’s Basics: Foxtrot & East Coast Swing

The class will cover the basics for Foxtrot and Single-Step (fast) Swing, so that students will enjoy dancing. Learning these two styles will cover most student’s dancing needs when going to a venue that features a live band or DJ.  Both dance styles cover a range of great music -- Sinatra to 1960’s Rock. The movements are relatively easy to learn, so students can feel free to enjoy themselves. The class will warm up with samba rhythms to get the blood going.

Mondays, September 10 - October 1, 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm Room: APE 101, $75 per person or $140 per dance couple.
