What's even more fun than couple swing dancing?  Community swing dances!  Shim-sham is the classic swing line dance from the 1930's that is done at almost every swing dance in Boulder (and Denver too), and you've been wanting to learn it!  Swing Rueda is a circle dance based on standard Lindy-Hop moves where we change partners around the circle.  It is the latest thing to catch on in the swing world!

  • 2:15 Shim-sham - all levels - beginners welcome.
  • 3:30 Beginning Swing Rueda - we will cover the basics of Reuda, the swing-out, break, reverse, da me, and a few other basic moves.  You should have some Lindy-Hop or swing dance experience to make the most of this class.
  • 4:30 - Intermediate Swing Reuda - we'll add to our repertory: Charleston, Amoeba, Boing-Boing, and some other moves new to our dance community.

Taught by Art and Becky Bragg

Join us for dinner afterwards at Pica's then back to the Avalon for the Third Saturday Swing Dance!
