6:30-7:15 p.m. WCS*Finesse  “Finesse” your West Coast Swing with Shelley Saxena!!  In a small group setting, you’ll receive hands-on instruction on how to smooth out your dancing, improve quality of movement, add styling and perform transitions more seamlessly.  Classes are learner-focused – and we take requests!
