[Swing Club ] Dance This Friday, Bowling Next Friday, and MORE

Hey Swing Club,

Thank you all for coming on Monday! I just wanted to remind you of some events coming up.

This Friday (Feb 2nd) is our first dance of the semester! The introductory lesson is from 7:15-8pm (with no experience or partner needed, of course), and then we’ll put on some music and dance from 8-10! It’s $5 and is in the studio room in 1515. We hope to see you there!!

Next Friday evening (Feb 9th), we’re going bowling! Please select the time range that works for you here. Once we nail down a time we’ll send out a carpool doc so you can get a ride if you need one!

Tomorrow we’re dancing with SwingCville! From 7-8pm is the Lindy Tempo Extremes Workshop (prereq is a swingout, which we didn’t teach Monday). 8-8:45 is their drop-in/introductory lesson (no experience and no partner needed), and social dancing goes from 8:45-10! The whole shebang is $5, and you can sign up to give or get a ride here.

Monday, February 5th is our second week of beginner lessons! Beginner will meet at 9:15pm in Mem Gym Multipurpose Room 2, and intermediate will meet in the same place at 8:15pm. No worries if you didn’t make it to the first lesson the other day– we’ll review everything before adding more moves and information to the mix!

I hope to see you all soon!

PS: Here’s the book I was talking about for the book club. Shoot me an email if you’re interested and with what days and times you’re generally available.
