Swing dance is not only popular but one of the most accessible and versatile dances you can learn. You will learn both East Coast Swing (also called Jitterbug), danced to Big Band, Swing and Rock-n-Roll, and West Coast Swing, which is a contemporary dance for a wide range of music from Michael Jackson to hip hop, and pop to rhythm and blues. The class will focus on developing the underlying technique that creates the "good physics" of effortless dance, such as footwork, timing, alignment, partnering skillsand musicality. Participants change partners during class. No dance experience or partner necessary. Shoes: leather soles OR white-soled sneakers with the treads worn smooth OR dance in socks.

When Offered Fall, Spring.
