Triple Time -- Advancing Your Swing will be the 6-7pm Bonus Lesson topic the four Wednesdays, September 9th - 30th at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night.  Kick your dancing up a notch with triple-time swing!  Triple-time swing forms the basis for most advanced swing dancing (including Lindy Hop, West-Coast Swing, and advanced East-Coast Swing), for the simple reason that if you add more steps, you can perform more intricate moves.  But triple-time is not just steps; it's a whole new attitude of dancing!  In these classes, we focus on movement.  We'll show you how to easily impress your partner.  We'll show you a variety of more advanced six-count moves.  Our overall goal is to raise your dancing to that next level!  Read More

Friday, September 18th is Swing Time! at Centro Asturiano in Tampa.

See you this Wednesday & Friday at the Gulfport Casino!
