Blue Macaw (formerly 12 Galaxies)

It's National Dance Week and there's all sorts of activities in and around SF. Most of them (including ours) are listed here:

Swing Goth is a re-appropriation of partner dancing updating both instruction and technique to the modern era. We may not do things like your grandfather or grandmother used to, but we do capture the fun they had.... and we do it while dancing to Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Gorilaz, The Smiths, Depeche Mode, etc.

Beginner dance lessons are no partner or experience required, and in the spirit of the week, the beginners lessons are FREE for this week. The open dance from 9-1am is always FREE.

Beyond Beginner Lessons are $8 for singles or $12 for couples. For these classes a partner is preferred preferred, so come on, every guy grab a girl... everywhere around the world...

By request, Beyond Beginner lessons will be a recap of all of the twists and turns and lifts and dips that we've learned to-date.


There are probably hundreds of events for Bay Area National Dance Week, so look for more of them at Happy dancing! :-)
