Upcoming Bonus Lessons: (6-7pm Wednesdays at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night)

Charleston is the 6pm Bonus Lesson topic every Wednesday in June at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night!  Half of swing dancing is Charleston-based, so get good at Charleston, and you'll get A LOT better at swing!  In these classes, we'll cover partnering, leading & following, and dozens of Charleston moves that you can incorporate into your swing dancing.  GET MORE THAN JUST KICKS!  Most people think Charleston is all about kicks.  Well, kicks are sometimes part of it, but what you do with your arms and your body is more important than what you do with your legs.  In these classes, you'll learn numerous Charleston steps & styles, plus how to work not just your legs, but your arms and body into the dance.  We'll get you feeling and dancing that Charleston!
