Beginning level Swing dance class to get ready for New Year Eve dancing
** The lessons will be 4 Saturdays 10/27, 11/3, 11/10, and 11/17 in 2018
** Field Trip to be planned in the class, tentatively planned for Sat evening 11/17/18, before everyone starts getting ready for the Thanksgiving week.
** Check in at 2:45 in the lobby
** Lesson from 3:00 to 4:45 and Practice time 4:45 to 5:00 on the dance floor
** Optional: Go to a bar nearby after 5:00 to socialize and to discuss any dancing that night (tabs on your own)
This is a progressive class and you must attend the lessons in a series. But starting with the second lesson, we will do a quick review of what we learned in previous lessons.
Depending on the interest level, we will plan another class on 4 Saturdays in Dec 2018 (working around the Christmas weekend) to cover a few other dances (Waltz, Cha Cha, Rumba, Tango, etc.) to get us ready for dancing on New Year’s Eve and for the Valentine’s day.
This class is designed for singles. So, we will be rotating partners frequently to make sure that nobody is without a partner for long. You get to meet and dance with most everybody of opposite gender in the group.
Couples and partnered people are more than encouraged to join us. You can start/end with your partners, but change practice partners during the lessons.
This is a multi-group activity. So, people from other groups will join us.
Please bring clean shoes to change in the lobby. We are renting a dance studio that has been used to teach Jazz/Tap/Ballet classes for 30+ years. So, the dance floor is easy on the knees and the ankles, and we have to take care of it.
Address is Lake Harriet Dance Center, 6438 Lyndale Avenue South, Richfield, MN 55423.
The lobby entrance is in the back parking lot. The studio is a few blocks south of Crosstown 62 on Lyndale on the west side of Lyndale. The 66th street is all dug up in this area. So, please avoid it at all costs.
The cost for the lesson is $15/person/lesson
** But you can save $10 by paying $50 in the first lesson to cover all 4 lessons.
** Please bring cash (exact change please) or checks — no credit cards or digital cash
** If you are not satisfied with the lesson after first 15 minutes on the first lesson, you can get a full refund and leave.
We hope to see you there!
Please invite your friends, family and coworkers to join us!
P.S. So far I have 15 RSVPs and I expect more to RSVP in the next week. But we can use a few more men to join us to make it equal number of men and women.
** Men: Many women like to dance these partner dances. Do you want to meet a lot of single women, dance with them for five weeks, and get to know them between dances?
