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 April at 7 pmSwing Outs!

For this class, you should be very comfortable with basic 8-count footwork and connection.

It's everyone's favorite lindy hop staple, the swing out. Whether you think you know enough already, or you've seen people swinging out on the dance floor and want to give it a shot, this is the class for you. We will work on the fundamentals of the swing out, break it down and piece it back together, and finish off with some fun variations

No partner required. We rotate partners during the class so everyone gets to dance a lot :)

Karolina & Jean
Tuesdays in April at 8 pmBeginner Charleston and Jitterbug

This month we will be doing beginner partnered Charleston, which is perfect for faster songs and a great way to start dancing. Focusing mostly on side-by-side 30s style, we will also add in some jitterbug steps and turns to give your dancing a little more variety and swing. No partner necessary! You’ll get to dance with everyone.
