$2 suggested donation

Chance to Dance is a practice session, held every few weeks, where Hoppers can practice the moves that we’ve already learned. In other words: dancey playtime! We won’t be teaching you anything new, but we can answer any questions you have about what you’ve covered with us before, and we can certainly help you develop some flair or string familiar movements together in new and interesting ways.

Bring your smile and your dancin’ shoes!

Everyone is welcome to drop by our first lesson, and there is NO PARTNER REQUIRED!

*************
HEY! Have you been leading/following and want to try the opposite role? Try going to Swing I to learn the other side of dancing! All of our instructors have learned both roles and we highly recommend it. It will absolutely make you a better dancer! Plus, you can dance with *anybody*!

Not sure which level will fit you best? The instructors will be able to help you make that decision. Never tried swing before? Drop in for the first class of the session and we’ll show you the ropes! Please note that this session we will not be accepting drop-ins after our first lesson.
*************

WHAT IS IT?:

Don’t know what swing dancing is? Find out on the Lindy Hop on the Rock Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/munswingclub/
or our swanky website: http://www.lindyhopontherock.com/

WHEN IS IT?:

TUESDAYS at THE LANDING in the University Centre!
**7-8pm – Swing I and Swing II
**8-8:30 – Social Dance
**8:30-9:30 – Advanced Class
*Please note that we will only be accepting drop-ins at the first class of the session.

7-8pm will be for pure beginners and those with slightly more experience, 8-8.30 will be time for free-form social dancing, 8:30-9:30 will be a class for intermediate/advanced dancers.

We will be exploring more advanced moves during the last part which may be tough for beginners to pick up, but beginners may enjoy and benefit from just watching. We’d also very much like to encourage the advanced students to come out for the free-dancing–it’s all about mingling and having lots of people to dance with!

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?:

- Full Session: $30
