, Intermediate level, continues for 4 more weeks of intricate, intriguing patterns.  This class is for current and past Argentine Tango students.  A passionate, soulful dance originating on the streets of Buenos Aires, Argentine Tango has gained much popularity in the same-sex dance community in North America (as well as in Buenos Aires). It’s addictive!!  Lucky for us, Murray knows how to make this dance – and all classes – fun, as well as instructional!

8 – 9 PM

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”

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.
