Introduction to 6-Count Swing
**no partner or experience needed!**
This is your chance to learn the fundamentals of swing dancing! Our goal in this class is to teach you the basic figures and get you dancing as soon as possible. After this workshop, you will be ready to go out and dance the night away, and even end with a dip! We’ll also provide you with resources to continue learning and go out dancing in New York City. This workshop is perfect for the ultra-beginner, two-left-footer, as well as seasoned veterans who are interested in solidifying their foundation in 6-count swing.

Partnered Charleston (8:00-9:30pm)
**pre-requisite: completion of our Swing Dance Crash Course, or previous knowledge in 6-Count Swing**
Spice up your dancing with classic partnered 1940’s Charleston moves, both side-by-side and hand-to-hand, with plenty of fun variations in between!

Each month we are excited to offer fun workshops which varies in content month to month. From dips and tricks to sassy swivels to teaching the “classic” moves, we create content based on a variety of topics that we are inspired by, or from feedback from students like you! Have something you want to work on? Suggest it to us and maybe it’ll be our next workshop theme! Email us: dance@samantha-and-brian.com
