September ’23 Happenings

Posted on by Danceworks News

There’s a LOT going on this month at Danceworks. We don’t want you to miss a thing, so we are giving you a bite-sized listing that you can quickly scroll to find just the right class, workshop or performance for you!

Social Dance (with a drink!)

Fridays, 6:30-8pm | September 22 & 29
Triple Time Swing & Jitterbug

$35 per couple | $20 per individual (price includes a lesson and one drink)

Looking for something fun and different to freshen up your date night? Look no further! Each social dance series will start with an introduction to the dance style and will work on building patterns and lead/follow skills throughout the lessons. You can join at any time, however, we do recommend you register for an entire series to gain the most from the class. This will give you the choreography, practice time and confidence needed to dance socially. After the one-hour lesson, stay for a drink and to mingle a bit. One drink (beer, wine or non alcoholic drink) is included in the price of the class. Must be 21 to consume alcohol.


All levels and abilities are welcome, and no previous dance experience is necessary.
