Saturday Swing Dance at Ted Motyka Dance Studio
Here’s your chance to learn how to move your body and feet to the big band sounds of the swing era! The music and dance evolved in Harlem, New York starting in the 1920’s and is characterized by its great energy and bouncing rhythms. There’s no pretence to looking suave or sexy, just come out and feel free to be silly and expressive. Drop-in lesson at 8pm, music at 9pm. No experience or partner necessary. Please bring a pair of clean non-marking indoor shoes (preferably no heel, low grip) or you can dance in socks. A water bottle and small towel are also recommended.
Directions: At the corner of Main/McDermot. The entrance to the studio is NOT on Main, it is located behind the parking lot on McDermot. Look for the pink door and lighted window behind the fences. Alternatively, come down the alleyway off Albert St (between Shawarma Khan and Across the Board).
