The 'Swing' is as versatile as the music it is performed to. In just 7 weeks you will learn the basics to a variety of popular Swing Patterns performed nationwide. Including: Two “Hustle” patterns (4-ct. Western Swing and 3-ct. Street Hustle), three patterns of the 6-Count/East Coast Swing  (AKA: 'Jitterbug'), and a variety of Latin Swing patterns (Merengue Swing, Cha Cha and Mambo Swing variations, and then finally a taste of Salsa). Dancers will swing to Rock, Pop, Country and Big Band tunes. Proper leading, following, and hand positioning skills, as-well-as rhythmic skills will be taught. Beginning through intermediate level moves and twirls will be taught using the "Dance Move building Block" method. Once one pattern is learned, the remaining patterns become easier and easier to add on. Dancers will even have the opportunity to develop and create their own dance moves and amalgamations utilizing the “Dance Move Paradigm” method. Class is designed for the beginning dancer and no dance experience is necessary, but some dance experience would greatly enhance your learning ability.  Registration for this class must be done as couples. Enrollment in this class is limited to fifteen (15) couples. There are no discounts available on this class.You must register 2 people for this class. To do this, add a quantity of 1 to your cart. You will be prompted for your partner's name when adding the class to your cart.
