Date of Class

Attention Instructors: I’ve taught this format numerous times and seem to tweak something each time. If you choose to try it and find something better, either a dance or song, I would appreciate it greatly if you would let me know. Or if you have something similar and would like to share, please use the contact tab for your comments and suggestions. Thanks!

Attention New Dancers: Don't get discouraged, it WILL come together for you. You're doing well even if you only picked up a step or two!
