Ever find yourself tapping your toes to jazz tunes? You can learn to step out on the floor and dance to the jazz tunes.

Learn swing dances like the “jitterbug,” “Charleston,” and “Lindy Hop.”

Beginner classes are appropriate for everyone including people with no dance experience. Intermediate classes are for people who have taken at least one beginner class and want to learn more intricate, creative patterns.

Register by January 18 and get a special discount - $20 for residents and $30 for non-residents.
