Fall Flannel Dance Party! – Saturday October 5th

Fall is here! Time for cool nights, breathtaking foliage, pumpkin carving, and most importantly: Flannel!

Put on your most comfortable flannel shirt and join us for a West Coast Swing dance party. For brand new folks just starting out we have a introductory lesson in West Coast Swing at 7:30pm. We’re taking advantage of all that cozy flannel and working on closed position West Coast Swing in our 6:30pm Intermediate Workshop. As always, first time dancers get in for FREE, so be sure to invite your friends!

What? You think flannel is too hot to dance in? Well then, consider any light material plaid to be your work-around.

FAQ

What kind of music do you play?
Unless otherwise specified, the dances are West Coast Swing, with slower songs for Fusion later in the night. Our DJ’s also throw in an occasional Waltz, Two Step, Nightclub, or Polka.

How can I get people to ask me to dance?
Make it easy for others to ask you by standing near the dance floor, visibly enjoying the song, making eye contact, and smiling. Always thank your partner after the dance.

When is it okay to decline a dance?
If you need a break, have an injury, or promised the song to someone else. After declining a dance, do not agree to dance that song with another person! If you decline a dance, it is nice to find that person later and ask them.

What do I do if I have a problem or complaint?
Let the organizers know! We strive to make our events enjoyable for everyone, and need to know of problems so we can work to fix them.

I left something in the studio, when can I get it?
