For all beginner swing students that have either completed a 4 week course or the Living Social Beginner Workshop— fear not! This crash course will be a continuation of the last beginner workshop with Yuval.
In this three-hour course, you will move beyond the basics and start learning more interesting patterns to enrich your swing dance vocabulary. Easy and fun moves will be broken down in this class with an emphasis on lead-follow skills.
