This series started in January, and may be joined by intermediate swing level dancers. The concentration will be on both East Coast and Lindy patterns. A portion of each class will be on blues rhythms. Get the feel for these cool rhythms while building partnering skills and repertoire. We'll be focussing on technique and steps.

.Tango (American Style)

Wednesdays: April 3, 10, 17, 24 ~ 8:15 to 9:15 pm we have room for a few more

This series started in January-- intermediate level dancers can join us. The American style tango (AKA social tango) is pretty much the original tango as it was danced in Argentina a century ago. It is more accessible (easier to learn) then the present day Argentine Tango. It's a wonderfully fun and creative dance. We'll start with the basics as needed before teaching lots of interesting flourishes and moves.

$8 each for 5 or more lessons; $10 each for 3 or 4 lessons; $12 to try a lesson(s);

$14 if two classes are taken the same evening
