Regular Lessons and Practice
Saturday evening lesson and social dance
Practice what you learned after lessons - you know what they say: "Practice makes perfect!"
The practice social begins at 8:00pm and goes until 10:00pm.
At First Baptist Church, 1300 Oxford St, Halifax, NS B3H 3Y8
See details here.
Bring your friends to this one if you love swing dance as much as we do! This one runs only on every third Friday of the month!
There is a one hour lesson beginning at 8:30pm, and then social all night long (around 11:30pm). If the mood is right, we'll throw in some late-night blues afterwards! This event is not to be missed.
Swing Factories are hosted at 1313 Hollis. The cover is $5 or for free if you volunteer!
