Swing 171 registration open

Swing 171

Registration for fall session of Swing 171 is now open.

Swing 171 is Corvallis Swing Dance Society’s premier lesson series. It is crafted to take the student from beginner to seasoned swing dancer in 10 weeks. Our goal for the course is that by the end you will be ready, and very excited, for dancing at weekend events like the Portland Lindy Exchange, and the Corvallis Swing and Blues Weekend (25-27 January, 2013).

Swing 171 is the heart of what we do at the Corvallis Swing Dance Society, and incredible fun. We’re looking forward to it!
