SUNDAY LINE DANCING IN ARLINGTON

The Arlington Calvary Church has confirmed  that Sundays are now ours for the long term!

My drop-in Sunday line dance class continues weekly. We start dancing with Beginner dances 6:30-7:30pm, and Improver dances 7:30-8:30pm. I review some dances, do a two-wall walk-through on others, and teach new dances. Requests always welcome.

We are in the Fellowship Hall of the Calvary Church in Arlington, 300 Mass. Ave, Arlington. Enter through the doors on Linwood Street.

NO SWING CLASSES AT THIS TIME

INTRODUCTION TO SWING DANCING: Swing is hot again, and as fun as ever. Learn triple rhythm and basic 6-count moves, the foundation for all swing styles, including Lindy, Jitterbug, and Jive. Whether you like Big Band or Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, George Strait or Dire Straits, oldies or new generation, you can swing to them all. No partner needed.

 

* SWING DANCE PLUSFor those comfortable with the triple step, here’s your chance to add to your repertoire and improve your swing style. We’ll introduce 8-count moves, including a lindy turn. Learn to become a better leader/follower. Come with a partner, or come alone. Add to your fun and get some terrific exercise!

SUNDAYS IN MEDFORD

Preparation through education and training is the best way to avoid (if possible) or survive (when needed) an assault situation. Learn techniques to disable an assailant, risk avoidance methods, and empowerment through knowledge.
