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
Tuesdays in November at 8-8:30pmBeginning Class: Intro to 8-Count Lindy

Learn the foundations of the 8-count Lindy Hop, the high energy dance from Harlem that swept the nation and then the globe. Starting from the very beginning, breaking down the steps and rhythms in easy to understand ways, Keith and Sparrow will get ya on the dance floor and having fun in no time. No partner required and drop in friendly, though of course you'll learn the most if you start at the beginning of the month and stay till the end!

"Core" lessons stress the fundamentals of swing dancing for beginning dancers. Lessons rotate monthly to focus on a different kind of swing dance (6 Count Lindy, 8 Count Lindy, Charleston, Balboa, etc.). Because good fundamentals are hard to develop in one month, we recommend repeating 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 :)

Price: $10. It also covers the Open Practice and the late night dance!

Sparrow & Keith
8:30-9:00Open Practice (all levels!) with DJ

Join us for the Open Practice! All levels are welcome, and our teachers will be available throughout the practice to dance with you!

Price: $5. It also covers the late night dance!
