Retro Swing is the revival of the music and dance from the Swing Era. Retro-Swing incorporates the same bounce and feeling of the 30's and 40's at a livelier, faster tempo.
Retro Swing dancing embraces moves and styles from the popular single-tempo "East Coast Swing" as well as the famous " Lindy Hop". Retro Swing is a great dance to develop rhythm, animation and the ability to lead and follow turns. Retro Swing dancers exude energy, excitement and fun.
Today's Retro Swing bands include Royal Crown Revue, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Squirrel Nut Zippers. The movie "Swingers" helped to bring this new genre into the national spotlight.
The Retro Swing is a a very popular dance today - danced to songs from Glenn Miller's "In the Mood" to Cherry Popping Daddy's "Zoot Suit Riot", the Retro Swing is a favorite among old-timers and newcomers alike. The simple steps and accented beat of the music makes the Retro Swing very easy to learn.
This is a 4 week dance program. We meet once a week each class is 45 minutes long.
Cost: $80.00 per couple for 4 weeks
