Beginner Swing Social Dance 4-Week Class

No stunts, no dance experience necessary!
Fridays in April, Starting April 8, 2016!

Instructor Jared Blakely has been hooked on swing dance ever since sneaking away from his Baptist university to a late night lesson in Deep Ellum. He started kicking it with swing junkies in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas. Spinning out of control, he joined a "Triple Step Program" in San Antonio, but it's always been one step forward, one step back, rock-step. He has taught lessons for the San Antonio Swing Dance Society and the "Swing Bums" at Trinity University.
