Free Swing and Foxtrot Lesson at UCE

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

The community is invited to this free dance lesson followed by an hour or two of open dancing. The east coast swing basic pattern will be taught (using single time rhythm) and then we will combine it with the basic foxtrot pattern. Both dances are six-count steps and work beautifully to big band music.

Lesson from 7pm til 8pm. Open Dancing from 8pm til 10pm.

The organizers will supply non-alcoholic beverages (BYOB). You may bring a snack to share but this is not required.

Casual dress. The theme is South Sea Island dance-cation, so if you have a Hawaiian shirt, this is the night to wear it!

We will be in room 3 – on the right as you enter the church from the parking lot, which is off of Greenwood.

Venue: Unitarian Church of Evanston, corner of Ridge & Greenwood Ave.
