Samantha and Brian teach both group and private lessons, as well as swing crash courses and special workshops in NYC. Private lessons offer individual attention, a pace that is appropriate for you, and the flexibility to work within your busy schedule. Group classes and workshops offer a more social experience and the opportunity to dance with many different partners to develop your social dancing. The students who see the most progress in the smallest amount of time are often the students who take both private lessons and group classes and workshops together. At the moment we find ourselves traveling in and out of the city to perform and teach around the world, but we are still free for private lessons!

Example Workshop Descriptions:

Swing Dance Crash Course 
Introduction to 6-Count Swing
**no partner nor 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.

Special Workshops
We are excited to offer fun workshops which varies in content workshop to workshop. 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
