Friday October 19th - Welcome New Students!
It's been a fantastic month for West Coast Swing. Over 250 dancers at Hollywood every week and a fun group of new students with us. Beginner class continues this week at 7:30pm. This is a progressive series that begins each 1st Friday. Our class is very structured, supportive and friendly. Experienced dancers are encouraged to help the DJP teaching team welcome newer dancers and work on your own basics.
Intermediate with Erica Smith!
At 8:15pm weekly we class will focus on connecting to the music. Learn to tailor your WCS dancing to different musical genres. Week 3 will focus on slow/lyrical music. Week 4 will be a spooky surprise. Erica Smith is Director of JT Swing Teams DC, a many time top teacher recipient, and Allstar competitor who lives and teaches in Beltsville, MD.
Host & DJ Dave Moldover & Kelli Kilgore will keep you dancing 9pm-1am (or later). Get there early! Stay Late! Its a party! $15 cover includes everything. ($8 under 21).
