Swing

Level 1

This “I’ve never danced before” series is a progressive introduction to swing dancing. It starts with single step east coast swing and catapults you to lindy hop. What does that mean? It’s flippin’ awesome. Choose between our two weekly sections, or come to both and really get that practice in. Onur and Jane are teaching Swing 1 on Mondays at 7pm; Andres and Erin are teaching Swing 1 on Tuesdays at 7pm (just before the 8pm weekly jam).

Level 2

If you know how to swingout, come here! This series will focus on expanding your vocabulary as well as improving your foundation. Basically, more moves for more fun! Swing 2 is offered once per week by Carena and Allie on Thursdays at 7pm.

Blues

Level 1

Blues dancing is a modern term used to describe a family of historical dances that developed alongside and danced to blues music, or the contemporary dances that are danced in that aesthetic. Blues 1 requires no prior swing (or dancing) knowledge and is offered once per week by Nick and Kayla on Wednesdays at 7pm.

Beyond Level 1

More advanced blues dancers are encouraged to come to the blues practicum, Wednesdays at 8pm.

Practicum

Following all classes (except Tuesdays' Swing 1) there is a dance practicum for that dance style (swing or blues). These are opportunities for you to work on material from class or other topics of interest with your fellow dances and instructors. You need not have attended class to attend practicum.

Open Track

Open track starts at the beginner level of an idea and goes of several weeks. After that, a new "module" happens and anyone can start the lesson! From line dances, to St. Louis Shag, we'll be trying to offer a variety of lessons based on demand and instructor availability. Open tracks will not always occur, but when they do, they're on Mondays at 8:00pm or Thursdays at 8:30pm.
