Tuesday Night Class Schedule

All monthly class series begin the first Tuesday night of the month, but you can drop in at any time. Classes are $10 ($8 for Swing Asheville members).

TimeClassInstructors
January: 7:30 - 8:30Intro Series to 6-Count Swing

This class will teach the basics of 6 count swing, starting with footwork and partnering, followed by moves and turns. This class will be a great foundation for the following monthly series of classes in Charleston (Feb), 8-Count (March) and Balboa (April). No experience necessary, no partner required.

Price: $10 per class, $5 discount if you sign up in advance.

"Core" lessons stress the fundamentals of swing dancing for beginning dancers. Lessons rotate monthly to focus on a different kind of swing dance. Because good fundamentals are hard to develop in one month, we we are offering Core lessons (on the same topic) to help develop the solid foundation you'll need in continuing classes. Core lessons are also great for intermediate and advanced dancers who want to "get back to basics" or learn a different dancing role (lead vs. follow).

No partner or experience required :)
