Come on out to support jazz and swing artists and experience the incredible feeling of dancing to a live musicians! Ticket costs for this week have been raised by just five dollars to help cover the cost of the band.
Monthly Lesson Series:
Six-Count Flash and Trash with Javier Reyes Johnson
The only prerequisite for this course is knowing our basic six count steps of swing dancing - rock step, triple step, triple step. If you've taken our free drop-in beginner lessons then you're good to go!
This month, Javier will be teaching flashy six-count moves to advance your dance repertoire. While we usually focus on understanding the mechanics of the basic movements, in this class series we'll be throwing a bunch of new and interesting movements at you. From the 1,625.2 ways of getting from closed into open to the 42.7 ways of doing a tuck turn, we're going to fill in the missing chapters of your six-count Lindy Hop. The only prerequisite is to know the basic six-count step.
Come on out for great evenings of dancing. If you're new to swing dancing we encourage you to take our 30 minute introductory lesson at 8pm. After that, join us for an evening of great music and fun in a low-pressure friendly atmosphere.

Intermediate Guided Practice Sessions:
For those of you who have consistently worked on your beginner fundamentals of Lindy Hop, we offer a guided practice session every Thursday from 8pm-8:30pm (same time as our beginner lesson) in the basement of the Polish National Home.
These lessons are intended to be for intermediate dancers looking for additional material and practice. We guarantee that the material will be challenging such that it will take additional social dance practice to master.
Just like your favorite coffee shop, we've introduced a Guided Practice rewards card to reward our dancers who come most often, because practice only helps when it is frequent and regular! Get your free Guided Practice Rewards Card with your first purchase of a Guided Practice, get your card stamped or punched by our instructors at each session, and after five lessons your sixth session AND the social dancing of the evening will be 100% free! Enjoy the rewards of a committment to your dancing!
