Dance Classes at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts
Zech Hall - 565 Camano Ave., Langley
5 Sundays: November 9 – December 7
with Walter Dill & Daughter, Celina

Swing 1: Single-time . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5:30 - 6:30pm
East Coast Swing is the best place to start learning partner dance and is probably the most useful and fun dance in our culture. This class will focus on faster Swing music. There is an immense variety of music that inspires Swing dancing – Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Pop, Western, and even Big Band! Watch our YouTube video for Single-time Swing. No prerequisite

Nightclub Two-step (Modern Foxtrot) . . . . . . . . . . . . .  6:45 - 7:45pm
Danced to many forms of music, our Nightclub Two-step is a stream-lined version of Foxtrot and could be called Waltz in 4/4 time. We traveled in Cuba (when Celina was 5) and discovered that the regional style of Salsa in Pinar del Rio is the same as our Nightclub Two-step. In other words, this is a very flexible and useful dance style. Watch our YouTube video for Nightclub Two-step.
Prerequisite: dance experience.
