Swing Dance Class
We are offering 4 days of dance instruction with The Bees Knees Dance Instructors followed by a dance with a live band on Saturday night! On September 5, 6, 7, 8, 2023, you can choose from three different time slots for classes
(2:45 pm- 4:15 pm East Coast Swing, 4;30 pm-6:00 pm Country Swing, & 6:15 pm-7:45 pm East Coast Swing).
$75 per person (covers six hours = one class for four consecutive days), $140 per couple (covers six hours = one class for four consecutive days).
We can accept cash or credit card payments on or before the first day of class. We are limiting our class size to 22, so register early to save your spot! We are hoping to offer a youth class if there is interest, possibly the early time slot or possibly a homeschool time spot, contact us to get on a list!
Classes are held at Kenai Performers space located at 44045 K-Beach Rd., Soldotna, 99669. Please arrive at class 5-10 minutes early to warm up and get settled. We highly recommend you bring your clean, non-marking dance shoes to change into before class- we have a brand-new dance floor! Low heel dance shoes or boots with suede or leather soles work best. No socks, bare feet, or flip-flops are allowed in class. No partners are required to join- you can sign up as an individual and we will all dance together during class sessions.
Learning the fundamentals and steps, not just moves, is important so that everyone can dance well, dance safely, and have fun. We are focusing on beginner-friendly dances for dancers of all ages and abilities.
COUNTRY SWING is a fun dance that is an easy introduction to social dancing. It includes lots of spins and dips to get you on the dance floor and have fun after the first lesson! Great for beginning dancers.
EAST COAST SWING belongs to the group of dances that developed out of the Charleston of the 1920s and the Lindy Hop of the 1940s. It’s a happy, upbeat dance, that we teach with little or no hopping. It is danced to swing music, rock, and roll, country, and boogie-woogie ranging from moderate to fast tempos.
