CHARLESTON II 6-week progressive swing dancing course in Tampa Florida

Take your Charleston dancing to the next level!  In this 6-week course, you'll become a better Charleston dancer.  You'll learn more Charleston moves, turns, positions, footwork, styling, and technique.  You'll become more comfortable dancing Charleston, become a better dance partner, and increase your tempo range.

PREREQUISITES:  This course is for dancers who demonstrate solid foundational skills (covered in Charleston I) and who can already comfortably dance the basics of Charleston (covered in Charleston I).  We highly recommend that you take Charleston I at least once before attempting Charleston II.  Instructors reserve the right to remove any student from this course who lacks the prerequisites.

INSTRUCTORSam  (Click for instructor bio.)

PARTNERS:  No partner is needed.  People are welcome either with or without a partner.  To maximize learning, all participants will be required to rotate and to dance with the entire class.

TUITION / FREE REPETITIONS:  Tuition is $73 for the 6-week course.  Please register and pay online in advance.  Tuition includes all six 60-minute sessions, six hours total of instruction.  It also includes up to three free repetitions of this course!  That's right....If you don't master the material the first time around, or if you happen to miss a week, you may re-register and re-take the same course up to three times at no additional cost!  Our foremost goal is for you to become a great dancer.  Offering free repetitions is the best way to accomplish that goal, because in the dance world, repetition equals learning and improvement.  This free-repetition offer is valid as long as this same course is still being offered.

REGISTRATIONAdvance registration and payment is required for this course.  Register and pay online here.  We require a minimum of 8 students registered and paid by 2/18/2020 in order to hold this course.  If the minimum is not reached by the deadline, this course will be cancelled and everyone fully refunded.  You'll be notified by text or email that the course is a go as soon as we reach the minimum (or the day before if we don't). 

WHEN TO ARRIVE:  All classes start and finish promptly at the scheduled time.  Please arrive early for each class, and 15 minutes early for the first class.  This will give you time to warm up prior to the class, and will ensure that you don't miss the important material that starts each class.

WHAT TO BRING:  Please bring or wear comfortable clothes, bottled water, and swing-dance shoes such as oxfords, dance sneakers, etc.  (Heels are NOT recommended for Charleston.)  Shoes should allow you to pivot freely.  Leather-bottom or suede-bottom shoes are best.

MORE INFO:  Please contact us (at least 24 hours in advance) if you have questions or for more info.
