Workshop / Lesson

New dancers welcome! The workshop starts at 7:30 p.m. The caller will walk you through many of the movements. Experienced dancers will delight in sharing their experience and they love to bring in new folks as well as see familiar faces! NO PARTNER NECESSARY! That’s a dancing tradition; partners mingle and dance with others throughout the evening.
