Latest News and Information

Updated: September 4, 2016

September is a big month for Swing 'n' Country as it is the start of our new dance season.    We restart our Wednesday Lessons and our Friday Lessons in September.  Also, we return to two Friday dances each month (except for September this year due to the Labor Day weekend occurring during our 'normal' 1st dance).

For our members: September is also membership renewal month.  See below.


Membership Renewals

September marks the beginning of the membership year. All club memberships expired August 31. To continue to enjoy club benefits such as member prices to dances, lessons, Dance Camp, and much more, members need to renew at (or before) their next club showing.  This year we are excited in implementing a new membership renewal system that employs personalized preprinted forms to provide easier and quicker renewal.  If you are new to the club, September is the best month to join because it means you will get a full year of benefits as a member.

September 2016 Schedule 

Wednesday Lessons:

September 7, 14, 21, and 28 
Two Step with Julie Hein and Don Leynes
Beginner/Novice Lesson 7:30 - 8:25 pm
Intermediate Lesson 8:35 - 9:30 pm

We can think of no way better to launch our new season of dance lessons than with the antics of these two wildly fun and loveable dance instructors. Two-Step is one of their specialties and you will be certain to learn much and enjoy your journey.

Due to the Labor Day Weekend occurring over our 'normal' 1st Friday dance of the month, we are having only one Friday Dance this month, but it's going to be a great one! 

First, Julie Hein and Don Leynes launch our new season restart of Friday Lessons with a pair of two-step lessons.  

Then it's Meet the Teachers Night. Get to know who your dance instructors will be for the coming year, and better yet, catch a dance with them tonight. That's what they will be there for.
