Topeka Swing Dance will continue beginner classes on Tuesdays, February 5, 12, 19, and 26, 2019 at the Jayhawk Theatre at 720 Jackson Street. Class is from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. From 8:00 to 8:30, students will have time to practice, ask questions, and social dance. Tickets are $5.00 each for the lesson. Water and snacks will be available for purchase.
No partner or prior dance experience is needed to participate in this event. It is advised to wear shoes that will allow you to slide rather than stick on the floor, and wear clothes that allow you to move comfortably. The theatre is cool, and dancers are also advised to dress in layers so they can remove sweaters, etc., as they warm up.
The lessons are becoming very popular. All ages are invited.
