[Swing Club ] Shim-Sham + Announcements!

Hey Swing Club!!

Thanksgiving break was so short, that’s not fair. Anyways, I have some announcements for you guys!

If you didn’t see my message last week, we are keeping our normal Monday Lesson times, 8:00 PM Intermediate and 9:00 PM Beginner. If you have completed the beginner East Coast, Charleston, and Lindy lesson sequences, you are welcome to join the intermediate lessons.

Moreover, starting next semester, we will also be holding an additional practice during the week (days undecided) for those of you who want to take part in showcases and performances that Swing Club is asked to do. If you have gone through the beginner track and dedicated to becoming a better dancer, then we would love to have you! Just talk to me/Luke if you are interested!

So, What’s happening this week in swing?
