WEDNESDAYS in August at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night...

Please Enable Images in Your Email program Every Wednesday in August at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night, the 6-7pm Bonus Lesson topic will be Charleston!  Learn:

GET MORE THAN JUST KICKS!  Most people think Charleston is all about kicks.  Well, kicks are part of it, but what you do with your arms and your body is more important than what you do with your legs.  We'll get you feeling and dancing that Charleston!

INNOVATIVE WORKSHOP FORMAT!  We'll spend the first part of the Charleston classes teaching/learning the material, and the second part practicing and expanding it.  Multiple instructors and advanced swing dancers will be on hand to dance it with you and help you get the feel for the dance!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:  All classes are FREE! ...with paid admission to the event.  Our Charleston classes offer something for everyone from the beginning to the more advanced dancer.  The Charleston moves and styles and variations taught will vary from week to week.  All Charleston classes stand on their own; you need not take one to take any of the others; but the more weeks you take, the better your Charleston dancing will be!  There are no prerequisites, and no partner is needed.  Come ready to dance, and please arrive early (doors open 5:45pm).  Flat-soled or low/thick heel shoes are recommended (high heels are not recommended).
