SWING (The partner dance) was born in New York in the 1920’s and spread like wildfire around the country as did the music of that time period. After making a steady comeback in the 1990’s, swing continues to evolve with talents from around the world that teach & perform the unique styles from the Lindy Hop to the Balboa. The last 2 classes of each series will feature fun patterns, fancy footwork and tricks & dips. Special guest follows* for ladies styling are planned for the final class of each month.

SALSA is the Hottest dance on the club scene today emphasizing styling, sassy turns and compelling rhythms. Originally hailed from Cuba in the 1950’s. It was greatly influenced by dancers and musicians in New York, Puerto Rico and Miami.
The last 2 classes of each series will feature ladies and men’s styling, embellishments, patterns, and Cuban motion technique. Special guest follows* for ladies styling are planned for the final class of each month.
