West Coast Swing Dancing Lessons. Starting Thursday, February 2, 7:30 p.m. at Dance Dimensions, 15 Cross St. Beginners should start the first or second Thursday of any month as the lessons progress. Swing is one of the many different styles of swing dancing originating from the original 1928 Lindy Hop. It is so much fun to experience because it incorporates many different styles of movement and music. It is known as the smoother and sexier version of the swing dance family. This class is a beginner class that is designed for the newcomer. This class will examine West Coast Swing from the beginning, guiding you through the basic steps and rhythms of West Coast Swing. Each week, the class will review and continue learning new moves and techniques. This class is also encouraged for dancers who are familiar with West Coast Swing because it will help continue to develop their technique and fundamentals. No partner needed — come solo or bring a friend! Register at https://bit.ly/3XAI3K8. @swingshoesdance
