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!
Saturday June 21st is Celebrate Sinatra ST PETERSBURG, as Ken Walters' celebration expands to the Pinellas side of Tampa Bay! One of Tampa Bay's premier parties, this black-tie optional affair happens at Nova 535, 535 Dr Martin Luther King Jr St N, St Petersburg, FL 33701. (See Jim Webb's Video #1 and Video #2 from a prior Celebrate Sinatra.) Celebrate the life and music of Frank Sinatra with dancing 9pm-1am to a live big-band orchestra with male and female vocalists. A Latin Quartet opens the show (and the dance floor) 8-9pm. The event runs 8pm-1am and features passed hors d'oeuvres by Cassis, complimentary signature vodka martinis the first hour, a cash bar, casino gaming tables, and valet parking. Celebrate Sinatra recreates an era of style and sophistication. Join Swing Time and a who's who list of Tampa Bay personalities for this grand celebration! Reserve your admission now....
