Quick F.A.Q. about Tuesday Night Swing

Do I need to know how to dance already?
Nope! Our beginner drop-in lesson is specifically designed for people who have never danced before in their lives! (However, it’s also a great way for more experienced dancers to familiarize themselves with the style of dancing we do, and to meet the people you’ll be dancing with!)

Do I need to bring a partner?
Nope! We’re a social dance group, which means you can dance lots of different people!

Is Tuesday Night Swing still on for this week?
Probably! Check our Facebook page for updates on when Tuesday Night Swing will be canceled (generally only for major holidays).

Wait… did I read the price correctly?
Indeed! Not only is the drop-in lesson no additional charge, it actually makes the dance cheaper! We want to make sure everyone has a chance to take the lesson, and we encourage everyone to take it multiple times. We cycle through different moves each week, so you’ll keep learning new things.
