We have four series starting up for you in April and May. They're all up on the calendar if that sort of thing is useful to you.

Saturday nights are powering along mightily at Nothin' But Swing. Our next live band is coming up over Easter long weekend. Doug Rhodes is bringing a quintet for all your dancing needs on Saturday April 7th.

Classes! As follows:
Swing 1 begins on Thursday May 3rd from 8pm to 9:30pm, and ends six weeks later on June 7th. As usual, you don't need a partner or any experience for this beginner series. All of our dance classes are taught at Dance Victoria studio, 2750 Quadra Street just north of Hillside.

Swing 2 will be 8:00pm to 9:30pm on Wednesdays, from April 11th to May 16th. We will build on the foundation you learned in Swing 1, giving you a whole pile of fun, useful, and wacky moves while also improving your dance technique. If you've learned to dance somewhere else, this is our usual recommended entry point to Red hot Swing classes.

Swing 3 runs from 7:35pm to 9:00pm on Sundays, from April 15th to May 27th, except for April 29th. You'll learn how to do a new set of basics that you will have been wondering about, as well as the classic Shim Sham routine, and the usual complement of Charleston. You'll need to have done Swing 2 with us or receive instructor permission to take this series.

Balboa 1 is also on Sundays, from 6:00pm to 7:25pm. Dates are April 15th to May 27th, except for April 29th. This is a second level class, so you need either Swing 1 with us, or some partner dance experience from somewhere else. Balboa is a fantastic little dance, with remarkably broad applications. Also, guys, girls like it.

To reserve your spot in your class, just use this finely-crafted and elegant link.

See you on the dance floor!
