A few of our first meeting dates have been arranged for the Fall semester! All of our meeting times that we have set in stone will be published on the top right side of this blog.

For the next meetings, we will be practicing at 8pm in the Beta/Gamma Commons. This building is located amongst the Gamma dorms, with Stadium Drive on one side and the Engineering building parking lot on the other. On this map, it is labeled #50.

Any students who are interested in learning how to swing dance are invited to join us! No prior dance experience is necessary. If you have any questions, you can either respond below in the comments or email Rebecca at USAswing@gmail.com

Summer Swing

For the summer of 2010, the USA Swing Dance club will be hosting swing lessons on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm in the student center ballroom.

Our first lesson was last week and we started out with the basics since everyone was new. Before we even began dancing with a partner, we practiced with some tension and lead exercises. Here is a clip with Daniel showing a sample of what we practiced on June 2nd.

(please note that at 2:17, Daniel gives the lead reversed.)

Here's a peek at what we'll be learning next week!
