August 2nd LSDA Workshop

We have an exciting August workshop planned for you! The first class is all about learning the Shim Sham, which is the fun jazz line dance you see at our Tuesday dances at 9:30. The next class is the Jitterbug Stroll which is another fun jazz line dance. In our third class, we will take all of these fun new jazz moves you just learned and show you how to incorporate them on the social dance floor! Hope to see you there on Saturday, August 2nd at the Courthouse Athletic Club.

Special Dance on 5th Tuesday of July

Tuesday, July 29th is a special LSDA dance on the 5th Tuesday of the month. Come join us for a beginner lesson followed by open dancing!

Since this is a special event, we are going to do things a little bit differently. The music will be mostly 50s music, with some 60s, and possibly a little of today. We are also planning on wearing polka dots or anything brightly colored! It’s going to be a ton of fun and we hope to see you there!
