Class Description

**New Class Description**
Swing Dancing has been a favorite American pastime since the 1920’s! Swing was a favorite activity for American soldiers during both WW1 and WW2 and many vets. Bandstand the Musical is the story of a group of American veterans return from WW2, struggling to find normalcy again in their lives back home. They form a swing band and through music and dance, learn to cope with life after experiencing the horrors of war.
Join us for this musical theater class featuring numbers from Bandstand and focusing on the swing dancing that was so iconic in the 1940’s and has remained popular to this day. We will cover styles like the Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, East and West coast swing and by the end of the course you will have a beginners knowledge of various types of swing!
Prerequisite: Core Dance
