Swing Dancing with Gottaswing (Beginners) – Starts Jan. 7
Sunday, January 14 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Whether you’re looking to stay physically active, meet new people or just want to survive that next wedding with your dignity intact, look no further. We’re certain that once you get started you’ll be hooked on the best music and dancing around, because it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t GOTTASWING!
Learn Jitterbug and Lindy Hop with Washington, DC’s most popular swing dance instructors and promoters, Lily Matini and Kevin Crandell. In the beginner class, you’ll learn the three basic footwork patterns that are the basis of all styles of swing dancing (6-count, 8-count Lindy Whip and Circle, and both side-by-side and Back Charleston). You never need a partner, and all ages are welcome.
You must be registered for the entire session; we are unable to accommodate drop-ins! Tuition is $120 per person for the eight-week session. For a detailed description of what GottaSwing teaches in their beginner series and what you therefore need to be comfortable with for the intermediate level, please watch this video with a demonstration of the material covered in the beginner class. Gottaswing instructors reserve the right to make final determination as to appropriate class level for students.
Please stick around after class for a 30-minute open practice with students from the beginner and intermediate classes welcome!
