This Saturday, our dance will be a local affair, with Corvallis DJs and instructors hosting the evening.
We're beginning at 7 p.m. with an intro lesson by Hannah and Phil, followed with music and dancing at 8 p.m., going until midnight.
Music for swing dancing will be played during the first half of the evening, with music for blues dancing until close. Hannah, Jeff, Laurel, Martin, Phil, Renee and Sophie will be DJing.
We'll be at Odd Fellows Hall, 223 SW 2nd St, in Corvallis, and cover for the evening is $5-7. RSVP on Facebook.
Lesson series next week
Our winter lesson series start next week. We have two: Swing 141 is for everyone, especially beginners. If you've been to a couple dances, Swing 142 is for you.
Both series are on Thursdays at the Majestic Theatre in downtown Corvallis at 115 SW 2nd St. Each class is an hour, and we meet for five weeks. The schedule for each evening is:
- 6:30 p.m. Swing 142: Intro to Lindy hop
- 7:30 p.m. Swing 141: Beginning swing
- 8:30 p.m. Casual dance
The casual dance at 8:30 p.m. is free and open to the public, and will go for about an hour.
Admission for each five-week series is $28, and includes passes to two dances. Registration is open on our website at: http://corvallisswing.com/portfolio/swing141-142-winter-2014/.
Classes are February 20th through March 20th.
You can also register at the front desk at our Saturday dance, or contact us to save your spot; you can pay in person on the first day of class, February 20th.
Both series are free for Swing 171 graduates. No partner is required for any of our lessons or dances.
Thank you for making our 4th anniversary last month a great success. Portland is hosting a similar weekend-long event in a few weeks, known as the Portland Lindy Exchange, from February 28th through March 2nd. Their website is at http://pdxlx.com/.
