April Session – Registration is open!

The next session of classes starts April 1st! We have several new class topics this session, register before March 17th to get the early bird price and save $25!

Focus classes: beginner (swing 1-2) or intermediate-advanced
Personal attention is the focus of this class. Registrations will be limited so that each person can benefit from individual time with the teachers throughout the session. The content of the class will be decided on based on the needs of the participants. If you want to slow down the rhythm and spend more time on tricky topics before moving on to the next level, this class is for you. Or maybe you missed several classes last session, or you prefer the small group dynamic. This might be the place you want to be!
