Sept-Oct 2019 Classes


Intermediate Rumba & Nightclub 2-Step

Learn more of the beautiful and romantic Rumba and Nightclub 2-Step! These two dances have much in common, so we'll be focusing on moves that work great in both, specifically on "shadow" moves. These flirtatious patterns are fun and challenging, and they look elegant and dramatic! Partners recommended. Pre-requisite: familiarity with fundamentals of both dances. (Not sure if you're ready? Give us a call!)

Dates: 6 Sundays (Sept 22, 29, Oct 13, 20, 27, Nov 3—no class 10/5)
Time: 6-7pm
Location: Dance North County, 535 Encinitas Blvd Suite 100, Encinitas Fee: $84/person

Beginning West Coast Swing

Learn the slinky "sophisticated" Swing! It's the smooth, elegant cousin of the bouncy Jitterbug, and it's perfect for lots of slower pop, classic rock, and blues songs. You'll be ready to dance at parties, weddings, concerts and cruises! Partners recommended. Familiarity with East Coast Swing/Jitterbug basics helpful but not required.

Dates: 6 Wednesdays (Sept 11, 18, 25, Oct 2, 9, 16)
Time: 6-7pm
Location: Fletcher Cove Park, Community Room, 133 Pacific Ave, Solana Beach

Beginning Jitterbug (a.k.a. East Coast Swing) and Foxtrot

This class includes both the classic twirl-filled, playful Swing dance you've seen on popular dance shows and in movies like "Grease," plus the smooth ballroom-style Foxtrot! These two dances are each fun in their own right, but they also blend like magic! (They share the same timing, so they're easy to mix.) You'll look amazing on the dance floor as you flow and glide with Foxtrot, then bust out the twirls with Swing, all in the same song! Partners recommended, no experience necessary.

Dates: 6 Wednesdays (Sept 11, 18, 25, Oct 2, 9, 16)
Time: 7-8pm
Location: Fletcher Cove Park, Community Room, 133 Pacific Ave, Solana Beach

Studio Events


4th Saturday Swing Dance Party

It's a lovely rockin' time every 4th Saturday at Dance North County! You'll be able to dance all Swing styles—East and West Coast Swing, Jitterbug, Lindyhop, Charleston—plus a bit of country added into the mix!

It's Halloween this month—woo hoo! Costumes are encouraged, but definitely keep in mind your dance moves (and your partner!) so you can still get your groove on without difficulty or injury. (If you're not a costume person, a Hawaiian or uh, zombie shirt is fine, too! ;-D )

Liz O'Grady will be teaching the warmup classes, and October's featured dance is East Coast Swing, focusing on triple rhythm! The first class will cover basic moves, twirls and timing. In the second half, you'll learn a fun East Coast Swing combination.

If you know another Swing style, this class will also show you how you can connect your Jitterbug and West Coast Swing moves—pretty neat! If you've never danced before, you'll be set for anything and know how to dance to all swingable music (a.k.a. pop from any era) after this class! No partner needed to join the class. Come on out dancing!

Date: Sat. Oct 26 (Next Date: Nov 23)
TIme: 7-9:30pm (doors open 6:30pm)
7-7:30pm: East Coast Triple Swing Basics Class
7:30-8pm: East Coast Triple Swing Intermed Combo

Light refreshments and water provided. (And we'd love you to bring your favorite snack to share!)
