Social Dancing

We love to dance and New Year’s Swing is where we do it – ALL NIGHT LONG! The hottest DJ’s, the top music, the best dancers, and dancing till sunrise make THIS the place to be.

You Spoke – We Listened! We received several requests for a chance to practice during the day so you won’t forget all the cool moves you learn in class. We think that’s a great idea! Time is limited due to the New Year’s celebration on Sunday, but as you requested, we are scheduling a few “Power Hour” dances so you can practice (and hopefully remember) what you learned. Thanks for your feedback. Let us know how it goes.
