That's right, the time is nearly upon us again! Another series of classes
is winding up and that means that another chance to take more lessons
is right behind it. Our last series of classes for the year will begin on
Sunday and Monday, November 24th and 25th and we hope to see you all

six-count, charleston and lindy hop basics solid! And Monday nights we
offer our Level One Lindy Hop class again (for those of you for whom
Sunday afternoons are difficult...), as well as our Featured Class and our
Level Four Lindy Hop class.

*Wondering what the heck a "gate" is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast).
