WEST COAST SWING

West Coast Swing is a slinky, syncopated “slot” dance which looks…well, slinky!  Students will learn enough basic steps and turns to shine on the dance floor. This is for beginners and those who want to brush up on the basics — “if you don’t use it, you lose it”

***Getting into Rhodes College
A “Rhodes College” sign is on Helmcken St. btw. Howe & Hornby streets. Look for intercom box to the right of the door. Buzz and one of us will let you in. The buzzer noise is faint so just pull on the door.  Take elevator to the second floor. Head left until you see  NSSB’s check-in desk by the studio door.
