Upcoming classes


Advance online or in-studio registration is strongly suggested for all RVA Swing class series.

Unless specifically labeled a "drop-in" class, single class drop-ins are not allowed without advance permission from the studio or instructor.


Beginner Classes


Introduction to Dance Movement
Tuesdays at 6pm, 4 week series begins August 7th

No dance experience required. This is our most basic class.

This class is especially for new students who want to work on movement and coordination before taking an Intro to Swing course.  These classes are great for people who are nervous about dance, want extra practice before taking a partnered class or for anyone who has taken a beginner class & struggled to pick up the footwork.

$25 per person for the series if you register online
$35 per person at the door (online registration encouraged!)
Single class drop-ins permitted, space permitting, at $9 per class.

Registration is open. Click here for class info & online registration.
