Spring and Summer Party

Dancers of all abilities, ages, backgrounds are welcome to join us! No partner needed.These parties are low key, fun and casual.

Use this time to practice the moves you're learning in class while picking up some new figures/dances from other students. Sway Dance instructors are always there to help you along the way.
