Learn swing dancing! In this 6-week course, you'll learn how to dance the easiest and most popular form of swing, known as East-Coast Swing or 6-Count Swing. You'll also gain a solid foundation in swing dancing that'll prepare you for more-advanced forms of swing such as Lindy Hop and Charleston. After six weeks, you'll know how to lead/follow dozens of moves & turns, and how to dance to a spectrum of swinging music. You'll also know a variety of swing-dance positions, footwork variations, and solid partnering and dancing techniques. At the end of this course, you'll be able to attend any swing dance and enjoy dancing the entire evening!
PREREQUISITES: None. This course is designed for those with zero prior dance experience. This course will also benefit experienced swing dancers who want to fundamentally improve their overall dancing. Complete this course and you'll be a better dancer than many on the scene today.
INSTRUCTOR: Sam (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 $70 for the 6-week course. Please bring cash or check to the first week of class. 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.
REGISTRATION: We encourage you to register in advance (no payment required). Click "register in advance" link, and you'll be taken to the Simone Salsa website. There, click "Register Here" link under Swing/Beginner 1. Then fill out the form and click the "Register" button. You can also register the first day of class at the studio, but please arrive early!
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.
