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 show you how to easily impress your partner.  We show you a variety of more advanced six-count moves.  Our overall goal is to raise your dancing to the next level!  Triple-Time Swing Classes run 6-7pm the upcoming 3 Wednesdays only (Sep 11th, 18th & 25th) at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night.  Just buy your ticket to the dance and you get each class, a $10 value, for free!
