May The Fourth Be With You Dance – Saturday May 4th

May the fourth be with you young Jedi!
Fly on down to the Mose Eisley Cantina for a Star Wars themed evening of dance and fun! Our main lesson will be on “Using the Force in West Coast Swing,” during which we’ll practice subtle changes we can make to our connection to enhance its mystical qualities. Though less applicable to Solo movement, you’ll be dancing like a Skywalker in no time.

Dressing in theme is encouraged, but not required. Props are welcome, though real light sabers are prohibited on the dance floor for safety reasons.

Are you new to West Coast Swing? Don’t want to pay money to try something new? You’ll be happy to know that all of our First Saturday Dances (one every month) are free for First-Timers new to West Coast Swing. Just show up before 7:30 to check in at the door and take a quick 30 minute crash course in the basic steps of our dance. Then stay as long as you are comfortable, dance a little bit, ask questions, socialize, and have fun!

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?
