of Swing, which builds on East Coast Swing
and adds styling. Taught by Rob Szarka

So many free lessons!!! Ahhh!! Wow!! :mrgreen: So I'm assuming that this event is happening on Saturday!!! Unfortunately I work on Sat!! And for the snow date I am supposed to lector at mass!!
sounds pretty exciting. I have a co-worker I need to tell about it-- he and his wife do ballroom and I think they would really enjoy themselves... plus it would be fun to have him learn lindy that way I can dance at work!
