If you’re tired of “sitting this one out” while everyone else hits the dance floor, let Sway Dance get you ready to boogie at your next office party, vacation, or night on the town. Our 8-week classes will prepare you for any number of social events or simply give you an arsenal of moves just in case you’re challenged to a dance-off. Because we don’t require you to have a partner, a group class is the perfect way to meet new people and learn how to dance in a fun, relaxing, and social environment.
