What is fun about Big Band dancing?

Big Band dancing is a skill every professional should have in his/her pocket;  social dances like Swing and Foxtrot can bring great joy to men and women alike!

We will build your social dance technique in big band dances in every session.   You will learn basics of critical dances such as Swing, Foxtrot, and Quickstep, social skills, etiquette, and more.  By the end, you will have developed skills that will enable you to function socially on a dance floor at big social events!  You will make a lot of dance friends while doing so.
