LEVEL 1: Intro class, with a focus on Fun! No experience required, for newcomers, beginners and for review if you are feeling rusty.
LEVEL 2: Need to know the basic patterns of left side pass, right side pass, push break and whip. At level 2 you will learn turn technique and develop your movement and partnering skills so you can add more complexity and sensuality to your dancing. Another level of fun!
LEVEL 3: Comfort with level 2 material, including basic turn technique and ability to apply that in multiple variations of the fundamental patterns; ready to drop deeper into the technique, partnering skills and musicality to make this delightful dance even more intoxicating!

COVID safety: masks provided, but not required. Please do not attend if you have symptoms or have been exposed to COVID in the preceding week. Please use good judgment for the health of us all and our loved ones.

Can't wait to see you there
