The Jazz Den crew hosts the Jazz Den every Thursday night at the RVA Swing dance studio.
New to dancing? Need a refresher? Arrive by 8pm to take the one-hour beginner lesson (included in your $5 dance admission). No partner or dance experience is needed, so just bring a comfy pair of flat-soled shoes* and your sweet, sweet self and get ready to have a good time. Unlike our progressive class series, this lesson is a self-contained introduction to basic swing dancing and is open to new students each week. No advance registration is required.
Then, at 9pm, enjoy DJ'd music for your dancing pleasure and practice what you've learned on the dance floor.
*If you're brand new, you don't need special dance shoes to join this party, but we do ask that you bring a clean pair of sneakers or similar flat-soled shoes with non-marking soles to change into, rather than dancing in the shoes you just wore outdoors. This helps us protect the studio floor from rocks, grit, and dirt from outside.
Stiletto or other extreme high heels are strictly prohibited, both for your safety and the health of our floor.
