Series Classes are usually 4 weeks (i.e. 4 Mondays) and are typically 50-55-minutes. Every week you’ll review previous class material, add something new, and practice.

*Note: “Leaders” and “Followers” partner rotation is expected for everyone’s best learning experience in our regular class series. At our party lessons you are welcome to either rotate and meet the evening’s potential dance partners -or to stay with one person.
