WANNA TAKE MORE THAN ONE CLASS IN A SERIES?
That's great! You save 50% on additional classes in the same series, e.g. Levels 1 & 2. (Please note: These discounted classes cannot be spread out over consecutive months)
"THE PRICE IS THE SAME, SO HAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE GOLDEN TICKET AND 3-SERIES?"
With the Golden Ticket you can take ALL qualifying classes in a 4-week series on both Tuesday and Thursday nights. (If you think you are going to miss a night or two, remember it's not transferrable to another month of classes.) The 3-Series is good for those people who want to do all 3 classes on a single night; and if you are going to miss a night, you'll still have the makeup anytime within a year.
Series cards sales are final, but they are good for one year from purchase date. If you miss a class, you may make up this class anytime in a year, or you may even use the "spot" for any class you'd like to review a special move, etc. Your series card purchase is transferable but non-refundable. Golden Ticket classes must be used in the 4-week series once the card is activated.

WHAT IS A SERIES?
A series is a 4-week session consisting of a 1-hour class each week. Example: Level 1, Thursdays 7-8pm, January 10, 17, 24, 31. We always offer 6 different choices in a 4-week series (see above, Class Levels & Times).

WHAT DO WE TEACH?
We have a wonderful curriculum that will take you from an absolute beginner on up to a seasoned swing dancer. Read all about it HERE .
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEN LEVEL 1 A & B? DOES IT MATTER WHICH ONE I START ON?
We want our students to get really good basics, so Levels 1A & 1B start exactly the same, but then in weeks 3 & 4, you learn completely new material. Our hope is that you'll eventually take Levels 1 and 2 twice, and it doesn't matter at all which one you start with.
MAY I TAKE MORE THAN ONE SERIES AT A TIME?
Yes! As a matter of fact you get 50% discount on additional classes taken in the same series. Most people, who are absolute beginners, just start with Level 1. Then the next series they repeat Level 1 and add on Level 2.
CAN I JUST DROP IN?
Yes, you can definitely drop in for a class. The price is $20 for one hour class. But we do ask that you don't drop in after Week 2 of our 4-week series.
WHAT IS THE GOLDEN TICKET?
The Golden Ticket is for our Intermediate Students: You can take any and all classes in that 4-week series. What a deal! (For Beginners, don't get the Golden Ticket yet, as the other classes will be too advanced for you... for now!). Note: Golden Ticket classes have to be used in a single 4-week series, rather than over consecutive months.

"NEW YEARS RESOLUTION SERIES" FEATURED CLASSES: BALBOA & SHAG!
If you missed our last Balboa series, don't worry! We are going to go over the basic steps on week 1, and then teach all new material in the following weeks.
Ever get out on the dance floor, and the song's too fast? What do you do? Walk sheepishly off the floor? NO! Why you know Balboa! And Balboa saves the day.
So what is it, you ask? Balboa is a dance born right here in Southern California in the 1930s (Balboa Island, to be exact) in Newport Beach. The footwork is easy to learn, with an 8-count basic, and can be done to super fast music easily. Balboa doesn't have to be done only to fast music, it can also be done to slower music quite comfortably.
Collegiate Shag, born in the 1930s, is a swing dance that has an easy six-count basic. And, boy, can you get crazy with this one! Shag is having a terrific resurgence today all over Southern California. So join in the fun.
Come along and join the fun!
All LEVELS WELCOME!
