At September’s end two vintage 1940s dances are coming together. Peas in a pod. Brothers from another mother. The Lindy Hop and Argentine Tango are exploding in popularity in the modern era. So we’re serving up a day long workshop to get you started and excited about both!
The daytime workshops will introduce you to each dance with basic beginner steps and a few fancy moves.
The nighttime dancing will let you relax, have fun and cut loose.
If you happen to already know one of these, you'll have the opportunity to learn the other while helping introduce a new class of dancers to what you love.
