…And we're back

how about a duet?

Hark! We have a dynamite surprise for you dancing divas – it's a DJ duo designed to dizzy you into delight. Mary and Suzanne will be playing off each other's brilliant musical ideas this week so don't you dare dodge your decision to dance to their distinct disco.

ALSO THIS WEEK, brand new classes for all!

Beginners, join us for our Charleston series with all-star instructors – no really, they're big-time award winners – Caroline and Jason. They've got moves and they'll show you how to make them your own. Intermediates, BIG series ahead brought to you by our other epic instructors David and Kate. The Big Apple is a famous, energetic group dance that catches eyes every time. The class will teach you the routine meanwhile enhancing your technique for both solo jazz and partner flair. Feel free to join us again if you've taken this series before, but your memory has fallen off the log. (If you don't get that, come to this class to figure out why it's funny.)

And finally, next week we've got another Vinyl Night! Bandleader, drummer extraordinaire and last, but not least, DJ Russ Wilson will be coming up to spin for us . It's tons of fun. Wouldn't lie to ya.

As always join us at 8:00 pm for the schooling and 9 p.m. for the moving.
