What: Balboa/Lindy Hop/Swing Social Dance
When: Sunday, June 25th
6pm - 7pm: open/guided Balboa practice time
7pm - 9pm: DJ'd social dancing
Where: RVA Swing studio
(inside the Lakeside Towne Center)
6114 Lakeside Ave, Suite C
Cost: $5 (no pre-registration needed, just pay at the door. Cash/check/charge)
Starting at 7pm, we will play a variety of great swing music suitable for all types of swing dancing. (Balboa enthusiasts: at least 50% of the songs we play will be suitable for your shuffling pleasure.)
End your weekend with a casual evening of fun, friendly social dancing and still get to bed early enough to face your work-week on Monday.
Please note that there is no beginner lesson before this dance (though we will be offering a guided practice for Balboa dancers from 6pm until 7pm). Make sure to show up at 7pm to maximize your dance time. :)
See you on the dance floor!
We spent over a month building our dance floor and we want it to stand the test of time! Help us keep it nice by following these basic guidelines:
--Please remove your street shoes right away (before you come inside, if you can).
-- Please wear suede or leather-soled dance shoes for classes and dances.
-- If you don't own proper dance shoes, you can bring a clean pair of sneakers with non-marking soles to change into for classes/dances. This will help us keep grit and dirt off the floor.
The following types of shoes are absolutely prohibited inside the RVA Swing studio:
- NO stilettos or other spiked heels. Not only are these inappropriate and dangerous footwear for swing dancing, they also tend to gouge and dent wood floors.
- No home-made duct tape soles. Yeah these might work great for a bit, but as you dance, you wear through the tape and leave sticky adhesive gunk for everyone else to dance on.
- No tap shoes. These shred the floor. Any tap classes will be soft-shoe only. :)
