Triple time Swing  This dance first gained popularity in the 1950s and is still wildly popular with people of all ages because it’s easy, fun, and can be danced to a wide variety of music. So pick your favorite popular music from yesteryear or today — Rock & Roll, R&B, Blues, Rock. . . and chances are you can do this dance to your music.  We’ll start at the very beginning and learn basic steps, some easy, fun moves and variations, and then string them together in lots of fun ways, to dance to your favorite songs. 

No previous dance experience needed. Register Here.


Cross Step Waltz This dance has been born and re-born multiple times down through history — most recently just a few years ago. 1996 to be exact. (In the broader scheme of things, yes, that is just a few years ago.😉). . . . By Richard Powers, dance historian and social dance teacher extraordinaire, from Stanford University. This is an incredibly fun dance, easy going, flexible and adaptable. It’s pretty hard to do anything “wrong” in this dance because if you do, you’ve just invented a new move or variation. 

Previous dance experience or instructor permission required  Register Here.

Monday Pre-Dance Class

We’re back home at the Latvian Center for our Monday night pre-dance class and dance.

The class is progressive and drop-in — meaning we progress through new material for the same dance for several weeks, (usually about 4), before moving on to a different dance.

There is no pre-registration.  Just come when you can, remind yourself of a dance you know or learn something new (there’s always something new to learn about dancing), use the class to warm up for the dance or meet the other dancers.    

The class is beginner friendly in that when we start a new dance we go back to the basics, so if we’re doing a dance you don’t know, if you come to the first class, you can start at the beginning. 

Because we have a variety of experience levels in these classes, the class may move a little faster than a regular beginning class, so we offer several levels of learning for the moves and variations we’re teaching in each class. You can choose your comfort level. We also offer beginning and intermediate classes on Sundays, so if you want more, check out our Sunday classes, above.  

Everyone Welcome 

Beginners, Experienced Dancers, Singles, Couples

Followed by a weekly dance

In Class we start each dance style at the very beginning, and instruction progresses over several weeks, through musical rhythms, basic movements and steps, fun, easy variations, styling, skills and techniques of the dance. 

Our approach to dance is easy-going, friendly, and light-hearted.  This is supposed to be fun! — And we play together to make it that way.

We also recognize different individual experience levels and learning curves, so we often offer options at various levels during class.  Choose the option that suits you in the moment.

You’re welcome to begin at any time. You don’t have to wait for the beginning of a new session. Start when it works for you, come when you can, pay only for the classes you actually take and then stay and dance, ‘cause you already paid for it. And besides, you’ll learn faster, and it’s FUN! (remember?)

We happily accommodate new students and returning students after an absence — if you start after the beginning of a class session — come a few minutes early and we’ll help you catch up.

Come learn a new dance, a new role, or more about a dance you know. 
Then stay for the practica.  We’ll be happy to see you! You’ll be glad you came!
