Foxtrot lessons happen the upcoming two Wednesdays, September 18th & 25th, 6-7pm, at the Gulfport Casino Swing Night.

Friday October 11th is a special 1960's Edition of Soul Night at the Gulfport Casino!  We're taking it back to the roots of soul!  Dance 8pm-midnight to the best in 1960's Motown, Funk, Soul, Rhythm & Blues.  Arrive early for a Carolina Shag Lesson 7-8pm.  1960's-inspired costumes are encouraged!  Look for a special Carolina Shag Dance Demo at 9pm by Renee Lipman and students.  Just $10 includes everything; students get $6 admission if they show up by 7pm and take the lesson.

Lesson Info — Swing Time welcomes special guest instructor, Renee Lipman, who'll teach the 7pm Carolina Shag lesson.  Carolina Shag is a dance known for its fluid and fancy footwork, somewhat similar to swing, yet a perfect fit for early R&B music.  Renee has brought Carolina Shag to Tampa Bay for the last four years.  She recently had the opportunity to compete and win first place with Shag champion, Brennar Goree.
