08JAN18 – Hitting the Ground Running

I don’t know about you, but getting back to work/classes on January 2nd was a bit like jumping onto a moving treadmill.  If you happened to miss that particular treadmill at the Dovercourt House last week – good news! We’re still welcoming students this week (week #2) in all three levels:

6:30-7:15 p.m. *New* Finesse classes with Shelley Saxena – finessing your West Coast Swing technique with hands-on instruction to improve quality of movement, connection and styling
7:15-8:00 p.m.  WCS*Repertoire – leadable West Coast Swing patterns that add variety and style to your social dancing
8:00-9:00 p.m.  WCS*Fundamentals
– last chance to join this progressive series designed to get beginner West Coast Swing dancers on the dance floor fast!
~8:45 p.m. Join our newest dancers for the last 15 minutes of their class and stay to dance until midnight – every Tuesday – just $5.00 (or FREE with any lesson)
