New Beginner Swing Dance 4-Week Class to start 1/22/16!

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 then started kicking it with other 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.
