Reno Swings! Format Changes
January 3, 2018
We are kicking off the new year with a new format for our Wednesday night swing dance.
WHAT IS STAYING THE SAME?
We will still be offering our drop-in Jitterbug class at 7 PM, followed by social dancing afterwards (around 8 PM). This class will still be open to brand new dancers… no pre-requisites and no partner needed. Cost is $10 per class (includes social dancing) and $7 for students.
WHAT IS NEW?
We will be offering a progressive (month-long) Lindy Hop class ALSO AT 7 PM (we will be using both rooms). Lindy Hop is a bit more intricate than Jitterbug, so we are offering it as a 4-week series starting the first week of each month. Additionally, this class has a pre-requisite that you have taken 2 months (8 weeks) of Jitterbug classes… this will help the class move faster, as we will be building on the techniques that we teach in Jitterbug. This class costs $40 for the series (4 weeks), $25 for students. We allow drop ins the first week of the month ONLY with this class. Social dancing is also included.
What is Lindy Hop, you ask? Here is a short video explanation: What is Lindy Hop?
WHAT IS HAPPENING AT 6 PM?
We will be opening up the hall for a guided practice for experienced dancers between 6 and 7 PM. PREREQUISITE: this practice is designed for dancers who have taken at least 2 months of Lindy Hop classes – it will provide opportunities to fine tune and continue progressing beyond Lindy Hop basics. There is no charge for this practice session IF you are attending one of the 7 PM classes. As a stand alone, the cost is $5 per practice.
Reno Swings! is held at the American Legion Hall at 877 Ralston St. in Reno. Map here
We accept cash, check or credit card at the door. We recommend wearing comfortable clothes and shoes, and we don’t recommend big heels.
