NIght Club Two StepOne of the most practical and versatile social dances ever conceived, this simple dance fills a gap where no other dance fits. It's a twist on the slow dance done to mid-tempo ballads & contemporary music. Relaxed and a very smooth style. It's a sister dance to West Coast Swing because it gives you an option for some of the slower, groovier tunes. Socially led and followed and easily embellished so that it can move all over the floor. Basics and beyond.

Swing on the MoveHere’s a twist on the Swing! This style travels around the perimeter of the room! A combination of triple steps and walks. Most of the spins and turns occur on the walking steps, which slows the pace making it easy to travel. A smooth and graceful dance and its popularity is spreading quickly. A fun style and an opportunity to do something new with your Swing! 6 & 8 count patterns danced to slow-medium tempos. Basics and beyond.

Club SalsaThe name "salsa" correctly describes the flavor of this dance: hot! Energetic and passionate with lots of fun spins, sharp movement and crisp turns! One of the most popular forms is the Cuban style. Instead of dancing “in-the-slot", it’s danced in a rotational pattern. Easy to learn, has a relaxed feel and Swing like patterns. Emphasis on lead & follow skills. Basics and beyond.

The Fine Print

Registration Policy The listing for each class specifies a deadline for registration. This date is when minimum enrollment numbers must be met. If there is insufficient registration by the deadline, the class will be cancelled and registrants will be called with the bad news. In addition, it is also possible that if numbers are extremely low a few days prior to deadline, a series may be pushed back to allow ample time to meet minimum. Or, cancelled and new dance offering presented. So please register as early as you can!

Providing we have met minimum numbers, registration for classes remains open until the second class of the series. No new registrations are accepted after the second week.

Unless otherwise specified, classes are open to both teens and adults. Partners are not necessary but do help balance the class.

Registration, a signed waiver, and payment are all required before participation.

Class Policies Check yourselves in on weekly attendance sheet and wear first name tags. Rotating partners is recommended, but not mandatory. Time is provided to dance with original partners.

We try to the balance lead/follow ratio on a weekly basis. Please let the instructor know if you’ll miss a class. As much notice as possible is greatly appreciated but even 1 hour ahead may allow time to pull in a lead or follow.

Instruction Unless noted, instruction is at the beginner to intermediate level. Level II classes provide intermediate to advanced instruction. If you choose a level II class, please be sure you have a solid foundation in the specific dance offered. The prerequisite for level II classes is participation in two prior series.
