Beginner Lessons

A good opportunity to learn the basics of swing dance is to participate in our beginner lessons, held from 7:30–8:30 on Tuesdays and Saturdays at The Green Door prior to our dance events. Each lesson will cover the basic footwork and patterns, as well as several beginner to intermediate moves. Instructors rotate each week and the content of the lessons vary so that you are sure to learn something new each time.

Admission $6 includes admission to the lesson and dance. No partner is needed.

Special Workshops

Each month our club hosts special workshops, generally geared toward intermediate to advanced dancers. The quality of instruction is as good as you will find anywhere, as we often invite world-class dancers to teach us their dance of expertise. Past workshops have included instruction in East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, West Coast, Balboa, Charleston, and Blues. Keep an eye on our events calendar for upcoming workshop details.

Here you can watch short video reviews of a recently held West Coast workshop.
