Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 6:30 p.m.—BRANDON—Swing dancing is quite popular in Vermont with many regularly scheduled dances, practices, and groups to get involved with. Join the fun by taking classes locally with swing dance instructor and Dancing with the Rutland Stars instructor, David Allan. Allan will teach beginner and intermediate level courses at Brandon Music, in association with the Compass Music and Arts Center.
Classes will be held on Tuesdays, Feb. 7, 14, 21 and 28. The beginner class runs 6:30-7:30 p.m., with the intermediate class 8-9 p.m.
The beginner class will learn six-count step patterns, proper posturing and lead and follow connections. Beginners seeking to move on to intermediate are recommended to repeat the beginner class at no cost. In the intermediate class, participants will review the basics and progress to more advanced six-count moves, plus some Lindy Hop and eight-count moves. Intermediate class participants will need to have taken the beginner class or have equivalent experience.
David Allan learned to swing dance from the top dance instructors in the country while living in San Francisco in the 1990s. He runs Green Mountain Stomp Swing Dancing, teaching and organizing swing dances and has taught for nine years in communities and colleges throughout the Champlain Valley.
