January 2018 Progressive Lessons Cancelled

We are moving our progressive lessons back to the Clintonville area!

There are no progressive lessons for January 2018.
Drop-in lessons on Wednesdays at the Big Room Bar shall continue.

As we take the month of January to finalize our contracts with the new venue, we hope you will join us at our weekly Wednesday night dance.

The Wednesday night dance includes a drop-in, half-hour East Coast Swing Dance lesson. This lesson is not progressive. We start from scratch each time, and you get a rotation of instructors teaching you different moves and variations to build your dance vocabulary. No partner required!

After the lesson, stay a while to dance to our DJs for three hours. It’s a great way to get over the mid-week slump!

Don’t forget to join us on December 20th for our last live band Wednesday of the year, featuring the Rick Brunetto Big Band!
