Next Steps for Continuing & Experienced Students


1920's Charleston                         
Tuesdays at 8:15pm, 5-week series starts May 1st

No partner required. Join Ryan & Erica for a 5-week exploration of 1920's Charleston.  The first 2 weeks of this series are open to all levels of dancer and will cover the basics of 20's Charleston. Students will learn both solo & partnered movements.  The final 3 weeks are especially for our Level 2 & 3 students: in these weeks we'll cover stylings, more complex moves, and transitioning back and forth from Lindy Hop & 1920's Charleston.

 At minimum, students must have successfully completed our entire 6-week Intro to Swing Dancing unit before taking the 5-week version of this course. Students taking the full 5 week series must be able to demonstrate correct 6 & 8 count footwork, triple steps, swing-outs and basic turns. (If you're still struggling with footwork & 8 count moves, or can't demonstrate a swing out, we suggest another round of the Intro course).

$40 per person for the series if you register online.
($50 at the door, space permitting)
No single class drop-ins in this series without advance permission from the instructors.

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