Dear Roger,       
October is Two Step Month
Wednesday Lessons:  October 5, 12, 19, 26
Friday Dance:  October 7
Theme:   Black and White Party
Hania Richmond

Be sure to attend this session as Hania Richmond will be teaching country's core dance, the Two Step.  If you took the Spins and Turns specialty class last month, you'll have a head start as this is a fast traveling dance with many, many turns.  Hania will help you make easy moves look awesome.  


All Swing 'n' Country dances and lessons are held at The Centre at North Park in Franklin Park   (map) 


Black and White Party

Friday Night's theme is Black and White.   Join in the fun by taking  Hania's class wearing these clean sharp colors.   Or you could take it a notch higher and dress like a zebra, a penguin or a  race car finishing flag!   Be silly or be serious, just be black and white!

 Don M Teaches Nightclub
Friday Dance:  September 14 

 Don M
Don has probably taught all of the 8 dances we do at Swing 'n' Country.   His versatility continues to be amazing.    This time around, we are lucky to have him show us some very cool moves to do while dancing the romantic and dreamy Nightclub.


As always, no partner necessary as we rotate often.
