March Dance – Saturday March 2nd

We would like to say a big “Thank You” to the 60+ people who came to celebrate our Birthday Dance & Potluck with us in February! Excited by new dance moves and new students, we are ready for our next dance on Saturday March 2nd!
The Main Lesson is for those already familiar with West Coast Swing. Come kick off the night with new material and skills to apply in your dancing. Note the time change, the Main Lesson happens FIRST now, from 6:30-7:30.
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?
